Spent a day on my parents farm on Wednesday.
A room I've been doing up for mum (over the last two years - don't ask! Time is not my friend!) has some issues with a leaking roof.
Mum and dads place is old, in some places it's as old as 600 year but most is just 400 - it even has a priest hole. The roof is big, has many valleys and lots of detail.
Dad lifted me up to look at the leak using the 4wd forklift and a cage on the front. Feels pretty high when you're 8m in the air!
Still theres some nice views up there! And I love looking at the house I grew up in from a different angle.
Non of the fixes I did were brilliant, as unfortunately I couldn't see anywhere obvious where water was getting in. I did fix a slipped slate on the main roof and sealed up some of the render where I think the wet was blowing in during driving rain.
Although not what everyone would like to be doing it certainly beat doing it all off a ladder and was a fun day spent with my dad!
