The New Turnip House - to work!

Since the weather has been (a bit) better and the days are longer we are moving on with our plan to reopen the Turnip House for Easter 2011

We have ordered the windows and doors, so now the pressure is on to make the building ready for them. We are currently digging up the floors, backbraking job but a great workout.

Raw material; as we found it. Note the turnip mangle against the left wall - must be an omen!

doorway and internal wall removed, ivy taken of walls; cleaned and re-pointed; massive stones (mostly) moved away - thanks to James! Digging up of floor in progress.
