This was probably one of Matt’s ‘Top’ days so far.
We got to the ‘knocking problem’ that kept him up at night for hours when we slept in the house a couple of months ago.

So now we can make fires safely. ‘Wallace brick’ keeping warm.
Matt has also painted the back plate and just to show how bad his fire obsession is…He films fires!!!

Local guy on the roof putting the ‘tubage’. Me and Matt wondering how on earth can he just walk on a roof so easily, especially climbing a huge ladder without using his hands…..?!

New windows, new chimney tops. That’ll do for now.
