Almost 13 years ago, when needing to have the dividing wall between the two back betrooms taken down and rebuilt, I glimpsed the potential of the rooms as a single room. 

The two identical windows made it obvious that the dividing wall wasn’t original to the house. 

And, now the wall is no more, the windows can be seen as they were intended. 

The plaster’s still drying in places, and there’s still a lot to do, but the result is better than I’d expected. 

It’s been the messiest job I’ve ever undertaken, complicated by the unusual angles in both rooms, due to old structural problems.
