Following on from the three week work party in April and May we want to try to complete as much of the outstanding works as we can in six days, the tasks are:

1.Demolish the chimney head and rebuild a new chimney.

2.Remove the fireplace and replace the lintel and install a fire back.

3.Remove the loose mortar above the south west upper gable end then lime mortar as required.

4. Remove the loose mortar above the north east upper gable end then lime mortar as required. ( Less work at this end.)

5. Build the room partitions to make a bunk room and an inner porch room. Make two inner doors.

6.Build the bunk beds in the bunk room, two double bunks and two single bunks.

7.Lime mortar as required the inside walls.

Lunch and evening meals will be provided, also tea and coffee for breaks. Bring your own breakfasts.

We will be staying at the bothy overnight so it is advisable to bring a tent and find as best you can a level spot to camp on. This will be most likely immediately outside the bothy. There will be some space in the bothy but during the day this will be a construction site to it is advised to opt for the camping option.
