Copper & Jam

I spent the day working under the dormer eve. I cut the tiles to fit up tight to the wall. I panelled the little triangle wall formed by the dormer and the main roof. I made lead soakers and folded them around the tiles.

The main job, which took too much time, was to make the copper tray which brings the water up from the valley on to the roof’s surface. I still don’t have a clear way to fashion this tray, but followed the pattern from the other side. It’s not great to look at, but of course can’t be seen.

Monika made jars of plum jam.

    The craftsmanship and attention to detail is impressive, I can see the whole process was well thought out. I look forward to tasting some when we come out.
