Photo Update-Autumn and the Roof


I took these photos of Saligo Bay just before I left at the beginning of October.







We haven't been to Sailigo Bay since I was really little, because it's always pretty rough and Mum has horrible memories of worrying about us getting swept away! We also used to walk down by the river, which is pretty difficult with 2 young children. The walk over the dunes and past the horses is far nicer.



An eagle over the fairy hill.


I was trying to take a nice photo of Islay before I left....


We have a new baby belling! All ready for Christmas dinner.


The seaward side of the new roof.


The Spanish slate on the dormers at the back. 



We still have quite a lot of slates...



The roadside with hebridean slate on the dormers.


After much deliberation we eventually decided to go with a tin ridge. We originally wanted to go for a dry ridge system, but the angle of the dormers and the top ridge is 90 degrees, which is very unusual and therefore we were unable to buy the dry ridge system.



I've been making a few modifications to the chicken hut, with Mark, Bob's son in law, as it was leaking quite badly in places.


One of the windows at the back. they don't have strips down the middle as we wanted the view to be clear as it is so spectacular.


A front window.


Bob's bit of pointing on the seaward side.


The newly finished end.


The scaffolding is finally clear!

  1. I can see it’s almost done. Autumn is the perfect season to do some house construction, I say, since there isn't much precipitation unlike during Summer or Spring. Besides, working on your house during rainy days would be such a hassle, don't you think? I wish you get it done soon; it can get a little frustrating to have pending tasks, especially in major construction projects like this. And I am excited, just like your other readers, I'm sure, to see the final outcome of this project! Keep us updated!

  2. It’s good to see the house shaping up nicely. I’m sure it will go well with the scenic seaside view after all the constructions are done. How is it doing now? I hope you were able to get all the work done before the year was over.

  6. Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time. Happy Ramadan Wishes 2018
