Taking advantage of a period of settled weather

Taking advantage of a period of settled weather, the roof tiles have been removed from our historic property in Pedrógão Pequeno, central Portugal.

The old tiles were stamped 1969 so this is not the first time the roof has been renewed as the property dates from the early 1800s.

Items discovered in the attic space include a newspaper dated two months after the April 1974 revolution and a shoemaker’s hammer of indeterminable age.

The new roof tiles already have been purchased and stored on-site, so it’s onwards and upwards with this renovation that will result in a fully restored, insulated and heated three-bedroom 200m2 historic property in this charming small town that was granted its charter over 500 years ago.
