Marmalade cottage was built in 1917. Then it was renovated in the 1950s. Then nothing, really. It's been empty for a couple of years and still has its fabulous, kitsch linoleum floor coverings. And an outside loo and a beautiful cream and green Metters wood stove. Come with us as we transform a gracious shell into a functional house and create a fragrant, edible garden around it.

In which the old girl prepares herself for a shock
Things Marmalade Cottage has never known:
An indoor toilet
A kitchen sink in the kitchen, with hot water
Safe wiring (or rather, the wiring was fine when it went in during the 1930s)
