Excuse me asking, but was that outcome deliberate? It looks kind of... a bigger entrance than intended?

I wanted to save the gable but the stone was heavy and the outside ones were brittle, they were only kept together with mud. So I chose to take most of it down for safety really. Not a bad view on a good day.

That's a nice, practical farming solution if ever I saw one. Proper job.

There will be more room for tools sheep once you get rid of the landrover.

Couple of updated pictures hoping to fit a roller shutter should be available in a month or so.

This is the side door after 35mph wind gusts. Quick repair

That will keep the worst of the elements out for now(y), keep an eye on that stonework though,hard to tell from the pictures but it does look like there are a few Widow Makers:eek:hanging around.

Thankyou hope it will, will be working on the stone work soon as possible allowing for weather on Orkney 🙂 don’t think I will be using mud as a filler though.

You look to have plenty of good stone to work with (y)done sympathetically and with a nice set of doors it will look fantastic:)
