Restoring our house in Umbria
From laying mosaics to having our builder go bust - there
wasn't a dull moment
When we started on this project we did so in the full
expectation that it was not going to be any easy matter rebuilding our
beautiful home in the Umbrian countryside. There is no way, though, that we
could have foreseen the trials and tribulations which, as I write this now,
are far from over.
This section covers not only the problems we had with a
builder who was fighting hard and against all the odds to stay solvent, but
also the happier moments like choosing mosaics, plants, streetlights etc.
There is also a lot of practical information here about 'how
to ...' with details of drainage, ducting, retaining walls, heating,
swimming pools and so on.
Restoring the house has been a labour of love and will
occupy us for years to come - of that I'm sure.
