The heart of the home, the hearth, to the left is a cupboard under the stairs, to the right is a bake oven and a storage place for wood, the little door above is the original salt box - it opens into the cold cellar - it would have been the driest spot in the house.
Peeking into the hearth, original crane and some tools, the cauldron has gone "missing", there will be a dutch oven simmering stew here by September. Mark my words, a meal in the hearth will be our housewarming.
The house is so sensitive to it's location. built into a hill the door on the right leads into the most beautiful cold cellar imaginable. Its so dry you can't store antiques in it... next post
If the ship remains it will be sailing from the livingroom to the boy's bedroom with a brighter happier paint job. If it leaves with the Puppetmistress we'll just have to make our own!
Nature Girl's room will be sparse but cozy...after the gigantic puppets leave. (Naming dear M the Puppetmistress is very very accurate). They are ENORMOUS too!
When not filled to the brim with puppets the room will be bright and airy, it has a built in cupboard too.
