Our architect, thankfully was fantastic, creating a great design and coming over from Glasgow on a regular basis to check all was well and going to plan. Our builders, from Shiskine just half a mile down the road, have done a superb job on the construction, using much of the original stonework and sourcing locally for what was still required. Although a few moments of " #### . . .what have we done . . " did pass through our minds (see pic #3) the result is a joy to behold (and live in) and we have now been resident for just over 12 months.
