It’s not a pigeonnier it’s Simon’s office?
The little building on the left-hand side of the house has become a useful storage room while we wait for our barn roof to get fixed. There is a ground floor and a first floor. The ground floor is compressed dirt on granite rocks. This needs leveling and a new concrete base putting in. The first floor had some nesting materials in there to be cleared and a bit of wood or so we thought!!!
Pictures and video below. To recreate this scene you will need:
4 people who don’t mind getting their hands dirty
4 protective hazmat Suits
4 industrial face masks to prevent dirt in lungs
4 pairs of protective goggles
4 pairs of protective gloves
large woodland area to dispose of 2 tonnes of dirt
3ft deep pigeon poop and straw
a large planked oak tree hidden in poop
4inch of compacted dirt
plenty of grit and determination

We celebrated all our hard work with a day out to Aubusson, buying wine, champagne, eating fabulous food and a little bit of shopping! Thank you, family team, we couldn’t muster the energy without you.
