And here it is… the roof

Just a quick couple of pics this time around.

A few days ago I wrote about the renovation of the Slugain Howff, but wrote from the point of view of a lowly porter, who left before the job was done.

Now Ed Pirie, one of the Howff’s caretakers has sent a couple of pics of the finished article, with new roof and guttering completed.

He said: “Further work for internal fitting out and pointing is scheduled and in hand,” and, with a wee dig at my age references in the last blogpost, added: “For us oldies it was certainly an exhausting but very productive weekend. Thank you all for your portering help.”

Just in time. Roof on – rain on.

    Valid point. Wouldn’t want the sun’s reflection to give away the whereabouts of the “Secret Howff”!!

  4. So if I get one of those wee drone-things, I’ll be able to see where the gleaming roof is reflecting back at me 😉
