Hidden doorway

With another week of poor weather on the cards and my building permissions finally approved for the house at Pont de la taule, I made a start on the structural works today. Hiding behind a wardrobe in what will be the living room, is a blocked up opening.

Externally there is no sign of it as the whole house is rendered. After some careful dismantling, it turns out that most of the door frame is still in place, sandwiched between the stone and the render.

Alas the oak lintels are rotten, so tomorrow I need to prop the wall and replace them. Fortunately I have some off cuts of oak left over from the barn.
