The builders have started!

The builders have started! After all the setbacks we have specialist
carpenters working to repair the roof timbers as the first stage of the
work. Once this is done and laths are fixed plastering will begin. Overall
the work should take 12 to 15 weeks depending on weather conditions. The
lime plaster that will be used is applied layer by layer, each one having to
dry before the next is added.

We had hoped to have the work done in time for Easter, but it has started
late, and so cannot now be finished until well into the summer: probably
early July 2017
