Following the achievement of making a structurally sound and water-tight shell, it was possible to make progress inside making the shell a home. The plan was always to salvage and reuse as much of the original fabric as possible, whilst utilising sustainable and traditional materials in a modern way that would enhance the environmental performance of the building. Cut care would be needed to ensure the intrinsic qualities and value of the building were not lost. Great care was therefore taken to ensure that everything that was salvageable was indeed salvaged and saved from the skip! Following treatment of the entire timber fabric, floorboards and doors were kept, and the sound parts of rotten floor and ceiling joists were set aside for reuse and repurposing. De-nailing was a big and dirty task.
