A new roof, guttering oh & kitchen window, all in one week!

It’s been a busy week here in Fayssac. We have had two sets of builders on site – one finishing off our new roof and guttering and the other knocking a big hole in the front of the house to create a space for our new kitchen window and doors.

IMG_2411The roof is finished so we are all watertight and now the builders are just adding the guttering all around the house and barns, so no more getting drenched when it rains.

The weather has been beautiful, but we had lots of rain on the weekend so the ground is soaked and very soft, so our lovely garden has been ripped up.

There has been so much old wood from the roofs, should help with the wood burning stoves.

Our two old windows in the kitchen are due to become one, and work begins.

The workmen have been fabulous, but it’s dust city everywhere.

Supports go in to stop the front of the house collapsing.

Finally the beams are added and here’s how they did it.

Pop back tomorrow to see the end result!

  2. Hello admin, i found this post on 17 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by high
    bounce rate. This is very important ranking factor.
    One of the biggest reason for high bounce rate is due to
    visitors hitting the back button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the search results
    your posts and pages will end up, so having reasonably low
    bounce rate is important for increasing your rankings naturally.
    There is very handy wordpress plugin which can help you.
    Just search in google for:
    Seyiny’s Bounce Plugin
