Whitby Holiday Cottage progress Tour

By Andy the stuff doer

See the “ONE Year On” progress report video here.

We’ve had lots of interest in our little cottage project, both on here and people physically walking past the cottage and being given a tour. So, one year on , here’s an update on our progress so far.

 We’re hopeful to have a further video of the finished project in the not too distant future, how’s that for wishful thinking.  In the meantime “like” us on Facebook for progress updates. And as ever we welcome your comments, questions and suggestions, just add them below.

  1. I can’t say enough about how you and your videos have helped me, I have a grade II listed money pit, six rooms renovated and then I finished the main bedroom just before xmas (a major task) but I struggled to move onto the next room, I have watched many videos on YT but yours have reinvigorated me, the day after watching your 3rd restoration video I was off, the next room on the list was the one I have had the most ear bashing about so carpet up, screed? I will tap it I thought and see, underneath about an inch and a half of cement based material I found the yellow floor bricks and then it all came back to me, Thanks a million. Oh and just a quick one, you routed your skirting with a Bit I couldn’t find could you let me know where it came from, cheers.

  2. Sorry I missed your comment (I get so much spam I sometimes miss genuine comments). Great to know you are cracking on with your project. Did I answer the router bit question via Youtube?

  3. Thank you for your website! I live in the US-NJ in what is for us a very old stone house dated 1700. After 40 years I am finally able to get to some of my more pressing house issues. Your article on replacing the ends of rotted beams has been most helpful. Until now I have kept things standing by using a row of lolly columns holding a beam next to the wall where the rotted ends of the beams are supported by these many lolly columns. As a single woman owning an old house that needs constant work my house has benefitted from a few craftsmen/carpenters who have appropriately worked on my home. In a pinch people whos attitude was “just get it done” have also done work. I am now in my seventies and will do what I can to get it right and pass it on to a family who understands and respects this great old house. Your emphases on learning the history of the home strikes a chord with me. Though only 300+ years old getting the history of this stone bank house has proved difficult to impossible over the years. I look forward to following your blog.
