First was the hearth that was in danger of falling into the cellar...
Ready for concrete.
The hearth has got to be tough because it's got to take the weight of this, plus coal, plus pots, pans, stew, and a kettle.
Karen insisted her gloves matched her hair.
Mocking-up the bottom steps. Yes the stairs are just hanging there.
The original bottom two steps were alarming flimsy.
Now the bottom two steps are ridiculously over engineered.
Many thanks to Karen who mixed all the mortar.
