Front finished

Slightly overcast start to the day but air temperature warmer. After arriving at the barn we had our first visitor of the day Monsieur le Maire. He walked up to the Bergerie with his dog to see how work was progressing. All good in his eyes with lots of advice too, which was more than welcomed. He liked the work, thought it looked good for the area…he is on our side, a good way to start the day. Al and I set about getting the rest of Raymond’s slates up to the Bergerie and then a load from Annie’s as well. Murray and I then stayed on that for most of the day with the odd bit of cleaning and drilling in between. Giselle steamed ahead with continual cleaning at a rate of knots and has been a HUGE help, merci Giselle. Al persevered with re grading the slate so that hopefully the back will be a smooth running process. Meanwhile, Clive and Hans tackled the smaller slates to finish the front whey hey! It looks great and looks like it has been there for years, which is just how we wanted it to be. We left at gone 7pm after taking a load of scaffolding down to Clive’s van as we slowly try to tidy up before we leave. Time is precious at the moment.
