During the past month I have been concentrating on the renovation of the rear barn wall and house wall under the roof terrace. Its been a long and dusty job removing the incorrect cement rendering and repointing the freshly exposed stones with a traditional and correct mix of lime and sand. (See an earlier blog)In addition I have constructed a roof to provide some protection for the logs and built a solid base for log storage.
|My friendly French artisan who kindly filled and pointed the stones!|
|The roof structure taking shape|
|Log stand, limestone chips and tiles on the roof!|
And today we went to the local quarry, bought 1.5 cubic metres of limestone chippings, spread these on top of weed fabric and then commenced the stacking of logs onto the log stand, so good progress is made.
|And finally......the first logs stacked and protected from the winter weather.|
