The outbuilding in the photo above has two distinct parts. The smaller part, which resembles an outhouse, is actually a miniature smokehouse in which the previous owner smoked and cured meat and sausages. The larger part served as a sort of workshop. Over the past five years, I have used this building primarily as a shed to store bicycles, tires, gardening tools, etc. As the photo shows, the building is a bit run down, but its structure is quite solid.
My overall plan is to raise the walls a little higher, cap building with a brand new roof, and then freshen up the exterior with a fresh coat of render. I removed the clay tiles and beams today. Tomorrow, I'll start laying bricks. If all goes well, I should have the roof up by the weekend or sooner.
