Traditionally, they re-use the old tiles and add some to replace any that are broken. They did the same thing to St. Monica's Catholic Church a few years ago.

Oof…my heart is in my throat! I know Yann is agile and capable, but I couldn’t watch him. Or the workers🤦🏻‍♀️.
It will be nice to have a refurbished roof, though.


Climacophobia: Fear of climbing ladders, stairs,rock walls,etc.

Dare Devil Yann obviously has no such fear.

Stay safe Yann and hopefully the weather will remain lovely and dry and sunny!


Six feet of stone wall makes for good neighbors. One of my memories of my grandfather was him on the roof of our two story house helping my dad build out a new dormer. He was 75 years old at the time. Two years ago I tried to climb to the windows on the first floor of my house to paint the frames. I was 73 and terrified. I called a company to come and put in all new windows instead.


I watch several YouTube channels where they are renovating chateaus in France. It is amazing how daring the guys are that climb around up high on the roof and rafters. And I thought you would never have to re-roof with those tiles. I guess everything wears out eventually.


The pink rose on the left edge of the picture really captured my attention.
