Men on roof may mean end of garage leaks
After a trip into the village we came back to find two trucks belonging to the man who built the house. It was him doing the work. A bit scary but somehow he has been put in gear and he had a big crew of men working up there. I say scary because that very day he had told one of the ladies at the agency to you know what and hung up on her. We decided to go to Empuriabrava for some lunch and shopping to get out of the way.
By the time we returned at four the men were gone. There are three huge plastic builder bags of stones on the roof of the house and one on each corner of the garage sitting on some tiling. One of these bags is perched quite precariously. There are stacks of loose tiling at the side of the house. You would think that by now I would be happy but I'm not. Tomorrow brings another tramontana with gusts to over 90 kph and on Saturday 110 kph. I hope the bags stay in place. When we will see the builder again remains a mystery.
Next week we are going to warmer climes. We are optimistic that we will return to a warm, dry house and a newly sealed garage roof. What do you think?
