It's okay. The work started yesterday morning.
It is a very slow process and lots of dust, but our motley crew of very skilled craftsmen/builders are doing a fantastic job. They are from the village and we know them well.
Not a destroyed window in sight. So far so good.
You just gotta love this picture. Ha ha !
You've got to wonder how on earth the window company were going to fit in the new windows without chiseling away plaster and rendering.
A bit of rubble and a lot of dust.
The old windows were fitted abysmally. The damp course membrane underneath the windows were lying flat underneath the indoor sill. No wonder we had water seeping in with the wind driving the rain through. Our team will fix this.
This is a gap around the old windows. No insulation like expanding foam. Just simply plastered straight up against the window frames.
It won't be so draughty anymore when the new ones are in.
Thank goodness we put our foot down last week as all of us are certain we would have ended up with quite a bodge job from the window company.
