Roof repairs & access

Woke up to more snow and looking very chilly outside!!! We headed up the valley again on roof restoration duties!!! Al donned his climbing head and trundled up and down ladders for the morning with tin for the roof, nails, weights etc in an attempt to make the hole in the roof smaller. Job well done, slightly more water tight!

In the meantime, I attacked the back wall to make access easier for the Sept. It meant pulling part of the small wall behind the Bergerie down and rebuilding it. Al came and helped with the finishing touches and to lift some HUGE stone for a step on to the back terrace. Looks great.

More nettles in the pm. Rescued by Clive the UK builder who had come to give us some advice. Great advice and even better news that he can spare us 3 weeks in the autumn to help us with the new roof. Looks like we are nearly sorted with labour for the roof, a huge relief.

    After the repairs, I bet that would be a very nice place to stay. Good luck.
