Rebuilding the front wall

Started by driving up to the mines to see if we could find an Orange mobile signal to get the new internet key to work. No joy on that front but we did bump in to the Mayor. After the normal greetings we arranged to go to his office to get a permit for the Toyota to be on the 4×4 piste.

When we got up to the barn there was already a car on the parking area. Peered in the back and saw some full shank boots so figured it was Lee’s who we met last stint. Spent the morning with hand saws, brace and bit, chisel and mallet; making the mortised door frame and lintels. Would have been easier with a chainsaw but we couldn’t get it going. Finished off cleaning off the walls and starting to rebuild them around the door frame.

Before we left for the Mayor’s office Lee and Ian turned up having been up Mont Rouch. We had some tea left in a flask which was well received. They had a fab day and it was good to catch up.
