It's March 2022 and the difference from walking the chalk when the site was set out and walking the same footprint with walls is enormous. We are starting to envisage now what it will feel like and having the window holes in, shows us what the view will be from each.
Of course the view is beyond spectacular, and we understand now why Lough Swilly is called Lake of Shadows. The clouds on the water are constantly changing, even the colour of the lough changes on an hour by hour basis, from azure blue to dark grey and back again. It's truly amazing to be honest and we decided early o that that the house would have almost every room possible facing the sea. As you can imagine that was difficult. There's got to be a front and back right?
Well there is but anyone wondering why the house is so wide ( it looks big assuming it goes back in proportion with the length from left to right) but its to get as many rooms with sea facing windows that we can. In fact the only single rooms from which you cannot see water is the upstairs dressing room and the garage below it. Even sitting on the loo, you can still see the sea!
