Nearing end of "Fix" stage ...

It has been quite a while since I have posted progress. The stonemason is coming back to finish the external window sills and crazy paved front verandah and patios outside the two sets of back garden french doors. It has been a real genuine pleasure watching an old fashioned tradesman attend his craft.

The shingle roof was is a joy to behold and it already taking on its natures colour with the summer rain we have had. The shingles are bloodwood and have a durability rating of 1 being the one of the hardest of the hard wood tree species. The estimate of roof life is 80 + years.
