Day 176 – Tuesday 14th March 2017 – phase 2

As an extra to the new upstairs build, and as recommended by our builder, we decided to have the rest of the roofing felt and battens renewed.  The felt on the old part of the house was in a bad state,  so tiles needed stripping off first.  In accordance with our bat licence we had two bat ecologists to supervise this part.
