The Log Store
Today we got stuck into repairing the roof of the log store, it was in pretty bad shape, the roof was rotten
Well the whole thing is rotten but it has to get us through this winter next year it will be all torn down and a new store will be built in a different location.
This was the problem these branches and the ivy had grown over the top and were pushing in the roof
Hubby was the one to get up there, I watched on standby from below waiting for him to fall through the rotten roof.
It was more worrying when he was up there with the chain saw, he cut the branches and handed them down to me
Eventually we got it all down yes this is Ivy and some Hawthorn.
Hubby then got some new metal sheets on the roof, they have been put on top of the old ones, the shed is so rotten and rickety if we had taken the old ones off the whole store would have collapsed.
We went and picked up the little trailer I ordered from Halfords, I ordered it online a few days ago, to be collected in store, I went to collect it and they didn't have one in stock, I wasn't impressed and made the manager aware of it, he offered me a discount of £80 off the price if I was prepared to wait for a couple of days, I wasn't go to refuse an offer like that.
As it was raining first thing hubby got stuck in putting it together
With the help of Kara who kept picking up his tools and bringing them to me.
It was soon taking shape
Just a few more bits to do
Then it was ready for me to try out, so I bombed about the field, collecting broken branches, I need a bit of practise reversing with he trailer on, it was great fun and its going to be a great help to me transporting things about homestead.
