On March 1, 2021 - The chateau roof was a massive undertaking for us. We realised that there was a leak into one of our grandest bedrooms. We had no idea how bad it was from going up into the attic space.
We really didn't understand what "replace the timbers" meant, so imagine our surprise when we received photos showing the whole front of the roof missing! I almost had a heart attack.
But within days it was sorted and we made the decision to replace the window, like for like, rather than get rid of it, which would have been a lot cheaper.
We are trying to stay true to our original promise to keep her as she was and only change it if it makes her grander. We will likely have to do a similar exercise on the other sides.
On March 3, 2021 - Ahhh, it's looking much more tidy! There's loads of room to recreate the drive round the back and more parking for our guests! Never in my life did I think I'd get excited about space for a driveway. And then, we bought a chateau.
Til next week!
