Now you’ve seen what has happened today, all outside action.  The dormers are finished except for the actual windows that is, they won’t be long.  The Velux windows are going in tomorrow, one in each of the front bedrooms, one for the bathroom and one above the stairs.  The stairs are being made right now too, at the other side of Edinburgh, near Ikea, if you’d like to know.

Little Green Shed is a blog I am sure to read every time there is a new post.  Here’s the link – http://littlegreenshed.blogspot.co.uk/.  I am delighted to have joined the ‘nature in the home’ series on the blog, it is exciting to be able to add a tiny part to such an inspiring blog.   Here is today’s contribution.

The pot of daffodils is from last year.  I left the pot at the back door with the intention of planting the bulbs outside at some point. They never did get planted and now here the little daffies are on my windowsill again, cheering the place up, for a second year.  Just as well they never made it into the earth outside, maybe this year when the flowers have all gone.

Day Twenty-One

The back dormer is looking great and can you work out where the side view was taken from (if you know the house)?  Answers on a postcard please.

Wires are appearing all over the place, now they’re taking over upstairs ready  for our lights and plugs.

So here we are at day twenty.  We have another dormer on the horizon and some insulation being installed between the uprights.  The bath no longer floods the void under the house when it is emptied so it’s all good.  Did wonder if the roofers would be here today after a wet weekend.  Glad they managed to get on.   Here are today’s pics for you.
