Here's a picture from that time. Ailz is standing in the back yard. The new back doors are being assembled. The kitchen- which can just be glimpsed through the gap- is an empty shell
Here's another. The big room with a gaping hole where a window should be was our bedroom. We were still sleeping in there. And it was just this time of year- and very cold. I think the workmen put polythene sheeting in the gap before they clocked off for the night.
