Young volunteers stripping the Roof of the south room today. A lot more of this timber will need to replaced than was the case on the north room.
The new roofing material arrives today, so there is a lot of work to be done carefully removing the old sheets and repairing the timber trusses and purlins. Fun fun fun!
|Rainwater was coming in through the roof, melting the mud bricks and mortar.|
While of course the cottage is in need of the most work, the shop on the farm is also very special. I am told it used to be called the “Rest-a-While tea room, and people would drive out on a Sunday afternoon for scones and cream.
