And the roof work moves on

The roofers (Simon and Peter) have really been getting on with things so we are now at the stage of the two front roofs being 'complete' although there is still some pointing work to do on the chimney. Some difficulty was experienced with the two Velux windows due to the height of the purlin but that's now been overcome. The brick-shaped hole in the chimney is awaiting a new brick with 2015 engraved on it.  There are 1915 bricks in each of the three chimneys but no one can say what happened in 1915.  Simon and Peter, who are undertaking the work, have advised that the roof has not been replaced prior to their work this week.
