It’s coming up for 4 months since my dad passed away. He and my mum had lots of plans on decorating and revamping their old miner’s cottage, that was built in the 1800’s. Sadly he will never get to see the work done on it., but my older sister and I are going to help mum to carry on with the work that needs doing. Dad would have wanted it finished and it will be a nice change for mum.
The thing about miners cottages is that they are not the biggest of houses. Back in the day when the tin mines were working in the area my parents live in, many men, women and children all lived together under the same roof. When Mr B visits he has to duck his head otherwise he will hit the beams in the ceiling. So you have to look outside the box as to where you can save space. One of the ways to save space is to have bespoke stairs fitted from a staircase manufacturers. Dad was always going on about having a spiral staircase put in he always liked the look of those.
