4, The real work starts.

October 1994 and work starts on the main house. The original proposal was for a separate dwelling to the original cottage with the latter being retained as a garage/granny flat. We decided to shelve these plans mainly due to the local councils planning rules which prohibited the issuing of a permit for a second residence on the same property.
We had the footings designed to be solid enough to allow us to not have to include expansion joints in the masonry (for obvious reasons when you look at the stone work).
