Harry's back home

Many people will not be aware of this but, over two years ago, Christine and I were forced out of our house at the Cobb due to the ingress of water. The house was brand new in 2007 and everything was wonderful until 2016 when there were signs of standing water. The insurance company became involved and by September 2017 we were moved out and rehoused by them while a large drying out process got under way.

Harrys home againUnfortunately, after a lot of investigation, the insurance company dropped us, saying the house hadn’t been designed properly in 2007 and that there was no waterproofing or tanking done at all throughout the building.

That was then but now in late January 2020 the house has been rebuilt by Carl Northcott of Seaton and last night was our first night ‘back home‘ for months and months. Christine and I just keep staring out of the window at our view of the harbour or looking back into the house at our beautiful new home.

Thanks Carl to you and your large team of very cheerful craftsmen. You’ve done a fine job and we are extremely grateful. Come the Spring, I'll be able to keep an eye on Marie F and Sunbeam from my window  once they're back in the water again ready to start the new season of Lyme Regis mackerel fishing and Lyme Regis deep sea fishing trips from the Cobb.
