This restored early 1700s thatched stone cottage is located in County Louth, Ireland, where Australian Sonja Bergin and her Irish husband Kevin decided to settle down. Their restoration earned their home Best Period Renovation in the Readers’ Awards 2011.
The article on the renovation process is quite interesting. Most of it was done by the owners but for the roof they needed a master thatcher. Kevin says that he found nearly two tons of junk in the old thatch!
