🏡 Started stripping the porch ready for new thatch….
How can the porch have so much thatch on it, amazing !
Some of the wood needs replacing on roof, must also paint woodwork on door & frame, taking away the black colour.
Painting done, black colour nearly all gone.
These two pheasants will have pride of place on top of roof BUT a big discussion is where do they go….together or apart ?!
Decision decided, one on each ridge, so cute !
Look at that porch now, love it ! Notice the painted chimney and what’s that on the roof !
The cows in the field wondering what’s going on or maybe they’re not bothered!
Big job next are the outside walls to be painted a nice cream colour, what a job that will be !! Made a start, primer first….
This side of house is high so making use of scaffold for an extra week so must get as much painted as possible this weekend ! *So managed to get top half of wall painted with primer & one coat of parchment colour, the weather wasn’t the best for one of the days !* So must give it final coat next weekend, hopefully finish bottom half of wall too !
‘Wobbly floor’ bedroom will be sorted soon by local carpenter…..
Well it’s 1st May soon, here’s to all the May jobs on next Blog ! 🏡 Enjoy….x
