Finally...... the front dormers on the house have been renovated! They have been quietly rotting away for the last 25 years or so, and getting builders in to do the work was prohibitively expensive, so late last summer Wyn decided to do the job himself.
But of course, with it being the tail end of the summer, he only managed to complete one before we went on holiday in late September, and by the time we came home, the weather was bad, and carried on being bad all winter.
So when Wil came home for a visit last Tuesday, he happily agreed to help his Dad and get the other two dormers finished. They re-tiled the roofs, replaced the rotten timber, and clad the new wood in uPVC.
They finished last night, just in time for Wil to go back to Bristol today.
Finally, the scaffolding can come down, and we can sort out the garden!
It's pretty high up there!
I'm going to choose my moment carefully before mentioning that the three dormers at the back of the house also need renewing...
