We didn't get to Jean Blanc till 10.30 because we went to look at a caravan this morning. I only managed to get 2 courses of blocks down when the heavens opened making it difficult and too risky to continue. I didn't want the mortar all washed out.
I was all set to come away but as Henners was off from school he wanted us to carry on (you know Dad's and Son's bonding thing).
So we decided to knock the middle wall down and recycle the stone. The rubble will be used to fill the space below the concrete when we are ready for the floor.
The walls have stood for a 100 years plus but today we revealed that they were constructed from little more than mud/straw/manure with stone collected from the land itself.
Its like a signature from days gone bye.
A signature from today!
