Up on the Roof !

The girls and the babies.....growing fast !!


I have spent most of the day up on the roof !!

Finishing off the corner of the roof, which needed to be tidied up, this has been sheeted and then the next job was to 'sark' up the gap in between the different roofs. This took up most of the afternoon, together with doing a spot of cementing. To fill in the gap between the stone gable and the roof of the extension.

True to form, as I was pointing up the edge, the rain came ! and we did get rather wet at one stage, the cementing has been covered up to protect it from any more rain this evening. I haven't managed to get a photo, but I think you can see the bit I'm talking about on one of the other earlier pictures......just have to hang the gate, make a panel to stop the wind from blowing through the part which the alpacas are going to be using......finish off the bottom part of the sides, as this is double boarded.....and I shall be done !!

We are hoping to fix the weather strip on the main barn doors....tomorrow, weather pending.

Then one last big job on the 'to do list' all being well next week, I have to borrow a tipping trailer for this one, so if we get the go ahead for the trailer, then the job will get started. I shall keep you posted on my progress....in between all this I have a load of 3 meter trees lengths being delivered on Tuesday, just waiting to be chopped into fire wood for the winter !

So its ......all hands to the deck......and I still have my hay barn to stack, so I guess you could say......looks like another busy week !!

Ahh! I see now - when I looked last there was just a title! Hope my computer is not cracking up (like everything else here!)

It makes me tired just thinking about all that work! But you'll be ready for winter.
