This is Jan from the neighboring village who fixes pretty much everything. We’ve been working on the various broken barn roofs over the last few days. There’s still a bit to do but the big windstorm has halted work for the moment, which gives me time to upload a few photos.
Gosh that backhoe is useful when it comes to lifting roof tiles.
And from the roof of the little cowshed…
The courtyard in the background of the above photo is where the cattle pens are going to be.

I’m not familiar with tiles like that, just with metal roofing or the red provençal ones. What are they made of?
If the front of the last photo is indicative, they will weather with a wonderful patina!
They are cement tiles. They are called ‘everites’. Most barns out here have them of varying ages.
