Fabrice has almost finished doing the roof on the “L” shaped part of the extension. This diamond shape is a tradition pattern on French roofs and although it’s done in new tiles it looks OK.
I’d have preferred to use old tiles really but all the old flat tiles we’ve looked at are pretty damaged by frost so I suppose it’s better to use these because they’ll last much longer. I’ll make up a mix of goat compost and water and we’ll spray the roof once it’s finished to give the lichen on the north side a bit of a hand to grow on the tiles and give them an older look.
The rest of this part of the roof will be covered in old canal tiles sitting on top of the existing cover.
