Both ends of the gite barn have rotten wood under the tiles so a fortnight period was marked out for work to be done. Thankfully I am not a handyman so did not need to go anywhere the highest end of the barn, apart from handing wood stain and roller at the end of the work from the top third floor bedroom. Our Belgium neighbour was enlisted to do the work being a builder and farmer J was the gofer (makes a change 😀 as it is usually me) climbing up and down the scaffolding many times with tools and materials.
The other end of the barn is not as high so farmer J is doing this on his own (although I may get roped into to being gofer as some point). Guess I shouldn't suggest starting on the third gite while he is there?
