CnP: What was the most difficult and challenging thing to do?
DSW: It was very challenging to get to grips with all the trades, especially as the refurbishment was my first experience of conversions. I hadn't imagined that there would be so many different opinions when it came to structural decisions. For example, when it came to the treatment of the wooden floor, I asked the parquet specialist, the construction manager, the carpenter and the restorer for the best solution. So each of them came up with their proposals - I should varnish, oil, wax or soap the floor. So I the four experts gave me four recommendations. The meeting with the villagers was also very exciting, we first approached each other cautiously, there were fears and reservations on both sides.
