Meeting the artisans

I have employed artisans to do work that I couldn't have managed myself due to the tools required and/or the heavy nature of the work.

Above:  Stonemasons trimmed the vertical pillars that were rotten at the bottom and placed some sturdy granite under them.  Just in time - a few more years and the house would have started to tilt.
Above:  A timber framer replaces the rotten beams.  A highly conscientous British artisan - highly health and safety conscious. I've never seen so many powerful tools coming out of one small van.
Above:  Hammering in the pegs to complete the panel.  Beautifully done.
