Clearing Up

We have been busy clearing up our storm damage.  A friend kindly came and helped to re-roof the loft, which made the work go much much faster.  We were blessed with good weather for the day too.

The loft now has a much nicer roof than anywhere else!  We still have to re-do the lining, but there is no hurry for that.

Kim has been plugging away at the gum tree, and it was nice when we could finally walk straight between the house and the caravan again, instead of going around via the driveway.  We also now have a goodly pile of wood awaiting chopping ready for next winter’s firewood stack.

I am also pleased to report that we have extended the flue on the kitchen stove which seems to have stopped the smoking problem.  You can see from this photo why that pleases me.  🙂  It was quite a challenge for Kim, Caleb and Sam to try to attach the new section whilst standing almost on tiptoe on the roof, trying to make sure the cap didn’t fall off and that the inner part was connected as well as the outer part.  Most amusing to watch, although I kept waiting for the extension to get dropped and come crashing to the ground.  But they got it done in the end with no accidents.
