First task, removing the half-dilapidated floor/ceiling from the top attic floor, to so-called Spitzboden.
|Before: Lots of planks and rubbish.|
|The view from below before commencing..|
So, trusty crowbar and hammer in hand, after a few hours I cleared the east half to leave the beams and piles of clay and wood. This is extremely dusty work, and the shot below is only after pulling a few handfulls of loose clay plaster down.
|After: nice and open, ready for lining the inside of the roof.|
|The view from below, after the dust settled.|
|From the other end, imagining a half floor.|
