I didn't take many photos of the fire damage, or keep many of those I did take. But here is one of the cupboard under the stairs, where it originated, before the cleaners had done much clearing of it.
It can be seen how the front of the cupboard bore the brunt of it, and you can make out the polystyrene wine racks at the back, from which we salvaged the contents successfully, and also the parfait jars of sloe gin and the already decanted bottles, to the right, and behind them a cellophane wrapped box of PG Tips tea bags, all of which were OK, and the sea grass shopping basket also was fine after a bit of time outside to blow the smell off it. The powdery mess and wrappers in the foreground were mostly the residue of Tom's late lamented curry spices.
Below is another view of the site of the fire, after everything had been cleaned up but not redecorated, the underside of the rebuilt staircase; you can also see into the blue room behind it from which the the wallpaper had been stripped and the furniture pushed to the edges so that the floating parquet floor could be relaid (it sustained little damage but enough round the doorway, caused mostly by water and some heat, to make it necessary to replace the lot). The actual fire damage on the wall itself is more evident.
The scorch marks, smoke blackening, molten plastic drips and holes from where the shelving and electrical installation had been removed, made some interesting shapes and patterns in sombre monochrome. Before it was covered up, I made some abstract studies.
Today, the last of the painters and decorators finished and left, they've been very good. Tomorrow I'll take and post some photos of what it looks now, and of the staircase in its entirety.
