Neil has been performing some fine joinery with a chainsaw for the opening between the barn and the hall. We had a worried phone call from a Fred (our friend who lives in the Loire) who having studied the previous blogs photos thought we were being a bit lapse with our supports for the beams. Neil has since added to the structure to make them safer, although there is no first floor or foot traffic to support at the moment. As always, any advice is gratefully received in these parts - especially from Fred who has so much experience.
The next photo is of Neil pondering on the first of the lintels for the opening. He does a lot of standing around like this.
The last photo is of Tam. We have added to his woes by having had his nuts off this morning. Hence the dozy, slightly pissed off expression. Still, at least his nose has healed and is back to one piece.
