Pittleworth by night. I keep meaning to do a proper photo of the house by night: all the lights on, cars out of the way etc but this is not that night. You may notice however that many of the windowpanes are different, some large wooden, some small lead. I suspect post-war renovation: when, I suspect, lead window frames were in somewhat short supply. Pittleworth was derelict during the war and, at my most fanciful, I wonder if some of the panes were taken out by bomb blast. Over three hundred bombs fell on three square miles around this house. (I guess this was a point where German bombers visiting Southampton often encountered fighters coming up from Middle Wallop air base, dropped bombs and headed for home. If anyone knows more, I would be delighted to learn more). The less fanciful answer is it was a desperate attempt to make the windows draft proof: if so it did not work. Which reminds me, the new blog post ‘Hot House’ is up, describing what happened when (bored with being blue with cold from walking in our own corridors) we put biomass heating into the house. We didn’t expect the results ... #putthatlightout #englishcountryhouse #lightedwindows #myhouseatnight #bynight🌙 #oldhouselife #biomassheating #hampshirehouse #testvalley #oldhouserestoration #oldhousecharm #tudorhouse #oldhousestuff #oldhouseproblems #myhouse🏡 #leadedwindows #historyofahouse #countryhouses #countryhousestyle #countryhouseliving #loveofcountryhouses #countryhouseproject #countryhouserestoration #mycountryhouse #wartimestories #downtonabbeystyle #countryhouselife

Woohoo! Pipes are in! 👨🏻‍🏭 Bathroom arrives on Monday (fingers crossed) I can’t believe how quickly we seem to be progressing now! I think the bathroom will be the first room completed- we’ve had a major set back with the windows due to our corner feature windows in the lounge being such awkward angles 🙄, and the bathroom is the only room in the house without a window (we have a velux in there instead), so that’s the only watertight space in the house! 🛁🧖🏼‍♀️🚽 . . . . #plumbing #plumber #pipes #pipework #bathroom #bathroomremodel #bathroomrenovation #traditionalbathroom #burlington #buildingourhome #propertydevelopment #periodproperty #lifeonthefarm #firsttimebuyer #barnconversion #friyay #progress #followourbuild #project #dreamhome #countryhousestyle #farmhousestyle #renovation
