This is the reason for my kitchen roof being torn apart in the first place! New readers please get more information here.
Have you noticed I have changed something in my blog profile?
The roof work seems to be going on for ever and the plants are struggling to survive the dense shade under the scaffolding.
Things are progressing though, and the end is in sight now. The new roof windows will provide more light in the kitchen.
This is what it looked like before the windows were put in. I am working through the photos in reverse order. Workmen's equipment can make a good study, I think.
The light and shade of the building materials can catch the eye with the sun suddenly shining on it and there are little shafts of light where you least expect to see any.
I was up the ladder at every opportunity with my camera keeping track of what was going on.
The birds have been scared away from their favourite tree where they used to spend time sheltering inside the dense branches. I am so looking forward to hearing them chatter again after this is over.
Since the work started, I have had things from the kitchen packed in boxes on the floor and there is all sorts of clutter to keep stepping over. I am at present in agony with my back problem. It seems one thing gets cleared up only for another problem to set in.
The picture below shows how things looked when the first lot of scaffolders had left.
I will be glad to get my garden back and get rid of it. Maybe in a week or so...........
