Talk about spunk. Here is another look at an article from British Country Living magazine. This is a small boathouse Paula Hamilton found on the Thames. It was built in the 19th century (incredible isn't it) and was basically empty when she found it. She had to remodel three times due to flooding (even more incredible) before she found a company to make the place watertight. She put in terracotta tile floors with pumps built in under them. The company also put in sumps and pumps that come on automatically and installed floodgates in the front which are locked into place in event of a flood and seal on either side with an inflatable membrane. Sound like something CD could do Deb? This gal has nerves of steel. Click on the first two pics to enlarge and see the mother swan and her cygnets. Also, the tiny windows at the top of the boathouse. Looks like a little corner of heaven, doesn't it.
