A 15th century Tudor house in Southampton, England constructed by John Dawtry, builder of the Mary Rose, has reopened after nine years of restoration.
"The house is now singing. It looks wonderful and visitors will be amazed. This has given it life for another 100 years," said project manager Dan Matthews about the more than UK£5m restoration. Most of the money was spent on structural stabilization, although the creaky, slanted floors have been kept in place for atmosphere.
A narrated slideshow of the house is available to view online.
