Here are some more updated photos, for those who may be interested: The roofing has been reinstated now, except for the Final Ridge capping work by the plumber. (this has been delayed because he asked for the slippery finish on the galvanised iron to be washed off first, because otherwise the 30° angle is too dangerous for him). She has now been raised up to the same height, and the footings for the stumps will be dug on Monday. Over beans for the removal of walls inside the house have already been put in the ceiling by my builder, as has insulation.
Meanwhile, the restoration of the Leadlights is coming along nicely. And just yesterday I acquired these fabulous 1880s cedar church doors we still have their original hinges and latch. They will be used as the entrance doors from the dining room (which will have the Leadlights as the feature in the middle of the western wall )into the back bedroom.

Big question for me is whether you've had a professional to look at whether there is any asbestos in your home before renovating.
