Waiting for the Weather


The Velux window can't go in until the weather is less windy and less wet, so all the roof up to the hole where it will fit and it's immediate surroundings has been done and now we are, as the title of this post suggests .... waiting for the weather.


Inside we now have first fix electrics done, we are having four new lights to replace the one set of lights on a strip that used to be in there on the wall.  Two will be up-lighters on the solid wall, you can just about see in the photo above where I drew round them to show the builder where to put in the wires. 


Luckily we can use the same light switch as there was a 'spare' switch on the socket that we could never find out what it did.


The other two lights will hang slightly lower from the ceiling, (can you just about make out the trailing wires in this photo?), hopefully over the dining table.  For this we put two tape crosses on the floor for the builder to wire above.  I hope we have our calculations right or the table will just have to sit off centre!!

As you can see there is now lots more 'cut to size' insulation in place in the roof space.


Advent Challenge - Day 11

A lovely little pudding bowl, that I think I picked up from a car boot sale.  I just have other bowls that I can make puddings in so this is surplus to requirements, and could be very useful for someone at this time of year.

  3. The weather has been dreadful the past few days hasn't it? At one point we had thunder, lightening and snow all at once! At least your builders managed to get the roof on before the weather closed in properly which for North Wales especially at this time of year is saying something. It looks lovely and I'm sure it will be a fantastic addition to your lovely home. Thanks for sharing!

  5. It seems to be coming on well. Looks like a good sized space and with a well insulated ceiling like that it should hold the heat better.

    1. They're not windows. It's the foil backed insulation boards that will be hidden behind the plaster and then end up looking like part of the wall. All will be revealed soon .... I hope :-)
