No fiddling on the roof.
The picture of the back of the house shows just how far the re roofing and laying of ridge tiles has come along, thanks to our very late summer. I was afraid that the roof work would perhaps be delayed until next spring with consequent water damage but the chaps have made great progress and another week should see the job finished.Plans for new barge boards are being drawn up with rather more adventurous finials than attempted by me before, plus the search for vintage chimney pots continues. Then new gutters,render repair,painting etc will result in a house that should be able to weather another century or two of English winters....whether I can is a moot point (and yes I intend to live forever!)
