Renovator’s Delight

While travelling around the Isle of Man we saw lots of old stone buildings falling into disrepair and thought it was a pity that they weren’t maintained, but you have to be realistic. 

Well, while visiting one spot we were shown an old cottage that the new owner is planning to renovate/restore and then add to.

It even comes with a sky light.

It is heritage listed, so there are lots of restrictions as to what can be done.

I love the idea of saving old buildings, but I’m glad it’s not me taking on this job.

I did see some pretty poppies near by.
