In November 2009 I wrote a post …and I’ll never do that again! showing the “before & after” photos of the renovation. Unfortunately I didn’t even think of taking the real before photos showing it as a dilapidated restaurant and inn so the “before” photos are actually the “during” photos.
Never mind all that because the fire has changed everything. Well, not everything the “during” photos stay the same but the “after” renovation photos have become the “before” the fire photos and the “after” the fire photos will become the “before” photos for the renovation to come! Complicated non?! It is easy if we just look at some photos.
And this “after the fire” photo becomes the “before renovation” photo
Going through these photos have brought back all the blood, sweat and tears that went into the five years that it took us to renovate the house.
And, Samantha Alexandra and I lived in it during it all!
With both Alexandra and Samantha at college next year
And I am not quite if I will be up to it! Oh, no, I’m going to get maudlin…..now where is that French therapy….?
