|Living room, August 2010.|
This room has one original feature that has to be preserved in some way, the so-called Lamberie, or wood panelling. This is just about visible on the left of the panorama photo below, painted a light grey, and we suspected it was also behind the modern cladding under the windows of the gable end, in the centre of the picture below, which turned out to be correct after I removed the modern covering over the weekend.

|Old panelling exposed.|
While removing wallpaper, many layers of old paint and plaster were revealed, with one of the most recent having some really lovely stencils making repeated floral patterns. There's nothing that can be done to preserve these, but a record will be made by tracing and photographing what is visible.

And that's the living room, for now.
