The place looks great, you both have a very creative way of putting all the elements together to make the rooms so inviting.

Can't wait to see the views from the rooms themselves, also the bathrooms look like they are finished to a very high spec.

Bravi! Can't wait to see the "after" pictures of your casale. Especially the stalle look promising with the antique arch. Your present livingroom or studio? Your photo collection could easily be the basis of a book. Are you considering??? Bacione, Ingrid

Congratulations on finishing your 'Project' and on your 100th post. I along with everyone else look forward to the After Photos.

I too just had my 100th post, I'm having a giveaway to celebrate the occasion. Swing by my blog and enter.


why o why are these pictures giving me an anxiety attack. I am emmeshing myself in them. (note to self: these are pictures of amanda's property, not yours. calm your sorry butt down. Stick a log in the fire. Take a pill).

Ok I'm better now. Really.

I also cannot wait for another mind meld moment while viewing the afters...

Now that's a lot of blood, sweat and maybe a few tears and blisters along the way. Bravo for your stamina and vision.

BRAVO!!!! Well done and congratulations, the photos are great and speak for themselves,cant wait to see what you have done and know it will be breathtaking!!!!
MIss you, ciao xxxxx


Wow I'm tired just LOOKING at the pics ;) It must feel wonderful to be finished.


I "braced myself" and "taken a deep breath". Now just hoping I don't have to hold it for too long, because I'm also looking forward to the "afters".

I'm so excited to see the after photos!!


I hear you! It takes so much courage to undertake building work while living in the house. Maybe now that ours is starting to crumble over our heads we'll get started on it.
I'm glad that you took the time to get the camera out. It's a testimony to your perseverance!

YAY!!!!!! I'm SO excited for you...these photos are GORGEOUS (as always). Two immediate thoughts: Amanda in shorts...don't know if I've ever seen it, and do you think if you use a long stick with a glass globe on top those crazy sun beams will show you a secret treasure location?! :)

Can't wait to see the finished product (in photos and in real life).

I'm with everyone else...can't wait to see the after photos. This looks like a huge challenge. Not one for the faint at heart:)


Wow! I just glimpsed the beautiful doors, floor, wall colour... don't make us wait too long to see the rest! Wish I was coming with the rest of the SGC crew in March. Can't wait to see it all finished and hope to visit soon.


No wonder you had "Blood, Sweat and Tears" such a lot of hard work. It is all going to be worth while. Can;t wait to see the next lot of photos.


I can tell you're doing a lot of work, and that it's all going to pay off. Can't wait to see the afters.
