So after weeks of dealing with the insurances and just 2 weeks of work we had a nice new roof.
From this to that.
It now actually feels very dark in the barn and we strangely missed the open sky at first…well maybe we will put some velux later on.
Once the roofers had finished their work, it was our turn to start clearing the back of the house and the field (still an on-going process…). They added an additional down pipe to the roof, which meant redoing the drains! So more digging for Matt but this time he had some proper tools : A mini digger!!
What a difference a year make, and being able to call on friends to borrow their equipment. Again this is all part of living in a very small village and it is enjoyable.
Matt’s happy dance : he’s just about to go and do some digging 😉
Last year’s digging and this year’s digging!
Then one sunday morning Tony dropped by and helped Matt finishing it off! Which meant Matt could do some more …..(yep) digging! He dug the whole back of the garden and then the ‘rat’s castle and now wants to dig the stumps in the field! (new addiction!! Boys and Toys, hey)
As to the clearing of the woods, well we had a bonfire of course!
Then Paul, a neighbour came round and took the rest of the rubbles away! Result.
