Asturias being an especially fertile place, things grow well here. Nonetheless, I was somewhat taken aback by the pair of mushrooms sprouting from the stone floor of the Cabaña (formerly the stable).
I suppose it's only fitting that this week we finally begin our renovation of the building, a thorough makeover that will include replacing the roof, rebuilding the rear wall, and laying down a new floor--beneath which will exist a drainage system to prevent moisture from settling.
The Cabaña's floors have been sweating since we purchased the property, making it largely uninhabitable as a guesthouse. We hope that in two months' time we'll be telling a different story.
