Work on the barn has suddenly been reactivated, so I have returned with crowbar, lump hammer, and gritted teeth to take out all the boards in the sections where the new windows will go.
The new frames for the windows will now be installed, then I'll be able to get the window man to come and measure-up. There are 5 windows in all; four face south, and one (above the main door) faces east.
Taking down the old boards is the easy bit, putting them all back again around the new frames will be something else..... This is how we finished the day (below).
The slightly smaller opening (bottom left) is to allow for the kitchen sink and splashback, otherwise the 3 other openings are all 80 by 160 cms.
And this is the final opening looking east. It really is beginning to look like a HOUSE.
Ain't retirement wonderful.
