The Scribes Cave – Rebirth

Derelect Church“It’s just perfect!” Jenny spun in a circle; joy written all over her face. “I absolutely love these tiles, they’re gorgeous!”

“Just look at the thickness of these walls, Jen!” Matt patted the window ledge he was sitting on. “Put some double glazing in and you’ll hardly hear any of the outside noise.”

Recently married, Matt and Jenny had just bought the old church on the edge of the village. They couldn’t believe it when their bid at auction was successful.

“Skylights,” Jenny pointed to the rows of windows high up on the walls, ”all the way along. They’ll let in heaps of light.”

Matt stood up and wrapped his arms around her, “What do you think about designing the fireplace on the old organ?”

Jenny tilted her head to one side as she examined the object of Matt’s suggestion. “Big screen television on the wall above the fireplace using the old organ speakers. We could get them refurbished and polished – couldn’t we?”

A slow smile spread across Matt’s face, “How did I manage to marry someone so smart?”

They continued to stand in the middle of the building enjoying the peace and contentment that washed over them. It was as if the old church approved.

      Thanks Ste, I’m so glad you enjoyed it. LOL I have to admit, I got my inspiration not just from the photo, but from all the episodes of Grand Designs and Homes Under the Hammer I’ve watched. I think I must be a frustrated home renovator :-D
