We spent the day moving wood about. The platform under the part of the roof we are working on wasn’t totally safe, so we took it all down. Made from the outer cut of trees, each plank was round on one side and flat on the other. Thick at one end, and alarmingly thin at the other. It had probably been up there for a hundred years or so.
We built a new safe floor over some spare timbers. We also had to dismantle last year’s platforms as we need the stock for the roof. All is looking good now and we’re ready to strip the tin.
The rain started last night ….
