A new roof on our Cornish House.

New Roof Cornwall
With bad weather holding us back we are finally given a dry day to get back out and work on the roof. In the above picture you can see the final beams in place ready to cover and get roofing tiles. Unfortunately there are only so many jobs my lovely boyfriend can do himself and laying the roof tiles is slightly out of his skill set so although he did the majority himself we had to get the professionals in to finish the job for us.

It might be late and now dark but here is the very nearly finished roof. Need to work on the render around the edge but at least we are water tight and hopefully a little warmer. It's another job ticked off the massive ever growing list, and a job we hadn't realized we needed to do. Hopefully there aren't to many more expensive surprises for us!
