Senhor Avellino and his team are working tirelessly to reroof our house. The good news is that most of the beams are in pretty good nick and haven't needed replacing.
As Tim keeps pointing out, it's a bad time of year to attempt a roofing job, weather-wise. And contrary to popular opinion, we DO have winter in Central Portugal - it's cold and wet. But the process of buying the place was so slow that we got quite behind schedule.
Luckily, we've been blessed with an unseasonably dry and sunny week, so all being well, we could be back on track to move into the house in April.
Next up: building the septic tank. Lovely.
