Yesterday I was searching for door handles. After a discussion with Old portuguese ( check out the wonderful site http://www.oldportuguesestuff.com/ ), we concluded that enamel is the best option for replacement in this case. There is wonderful stores in Lisboa where you can get this ( eg Casa Achilles ) We also got the amount of our crowdfunding sent in today 3.610,00€: Amount raised -162,45€: Indiegogo platform fee (4.5%) =3.447,55€ Some backers have sent us on the side so thanks for all your contributions!!! To test the apartment we have one (friend) guest for a couple of days in December and someone staying for full 2 months in Jan and Feb. Very excited to welcome you !
