17th and 18th of May

On Saturday the 17th of May, we were due to receive the external doors and windows and, in a separate shipment, the insulation for the roof space. We arrived early on the Saturday morning to find that the roofing contractors had finished tiling over our blue, asphalt covering and we now had a permanent, solid roof of our chosen, "Sorrento-red". The colour is a little darker than the sample, but as we were both worried that it was going to be too bright, it actually worked out well.


"Sorrento-Red"

Cutting Bolts

Windows and a waiting door
 

Red on Red

We have a front door

Manhandling the terrace door into place
 

Tacking the surround to the floating frame

It's a big window

Sacrificing another chicken to the window gods
