We got those keys, we went inside and pretty much destroyed the kitchen and bathroom!!!!
I left two lovely, capable men unsupervised for the day yesterday and by the late afternoon there was nothing to distinguish where the kitchen ended and the upstairs bathroom began - yikes.
But I am suitably reassured that all is well and this is for the best, rotten beams are not good. So much chocolate later we are off again today to try and put some more beams in place......watch this space!
