I don't know exactly how old my 18th century cottage is - the local history association says we know it was there in 1772, so it was probably built earlier. But 1772 is as good a year to celebrate as any - because next year will be 250!
I've made some progress, and one room is getting good enough to brag about. (lol!)
Before, there were holes in the floor - I made some more through stepping through it - water damage on a wall, and some really stinky old insulation.
And now, I just have to do the rest of it, haha!
