Let's try and load this post again. And there was me all chuffed 'cos Blogger actually uploaded some pictures....
We have spoken to the lovely salvage yard people (no Lovejoy around...) and they are coming on Friday to measure up and check fittability [that's probably not actually a word...]. It seems we will not have to spend the 6th winter in this house staring at the most hideous fireplaces ever built.
I give you these gems: first up the living room, and then the living room.
Lovely aren't they!?
Hopefully instead we will be looking at something like this and this.
Much better I think you would agree...
Still, upstairs we have got the original fireplaces.
One currently buried behind furniture (builders still disrupting the house)
One painted over (we've just got some stuff to do it up...)
And one we've just uncovered from behind a cover (hence the cobwebs and dust!)
[Sorry Blogger unhappy at loading last picture]
