I think I failed to show you a picture of the completed bricking up of the servant’s toilet door which happened a few days back. The original door is propped up against it and I’m thinking of using it as the future side gate.
We are also future-proofing the build. You might recall that we are leaving the conversion of the coal store into a utility room and downstairs toilet until Stage 2 of the build. We decided that it was best to cut the doorway through into the coal store now and add the lintel while we were at this point in order to make it much easier to extend into there in the future. It will be plastered up behind the wall and ready to go when we finally get to Stage 2. We’re so clever.
