Last week, I went over to Torr na Locha for the first time since October.  What a change.  The living room now feels spacious, as Damon managed to move the internal walls outwards whilst insulating to a significantly higher degree.  The woodburning stove is lovely and cosy in there.  The taping is nearly finished, and the internal doors hung.  So its painting the walls next, then the skirting boards and facings.  The second staircase works really well, and lets lots of light in from above.  In these old crofthouse designs getting daylight is important.
The girls and I had great fun with Sally the horse (in between the cleaning we were doing, clearing the floors and mopping up the dust).  She's a great character.  It's a shame she won't be there in the summers.  She stays on Iona then. as she pulls the cart on Iona to take visitors from the ferry to the abbey.
I picked up a sofa and 2 matching chairs for my Etive project yesterday, I am absolutely delighted with them, and they'll take centre stage in Etive with the period style furnishings.  You can see the sofa on top of the car in the last picture.  Once cleaned up and some repairs done, the sofa will need to fly up and fit through the window of Etive. That'll be fun and games again on the cherry picker.
