Roughly Weatherproof

a minor milestone has been reached and the workshop is now more-or-less wind and rain proof. Bob arrived with the replacement window on Tuesday and helped me fit it.

It turns out there is a right and a wrong-way for a modern glazing unit to face – apparently one of the surfaces is ‘low emission’ and needs to be on the inside. I am not completely sure Bob was not winding me up on this point.

Anyhow, no more tarpaulin – HOORAY!

It turns out that a few years ago Bob had a side business doing garden rooms but had to give it up as there was no margin given the labour and material costs. I could only sympathise.

no more tarpaulin (the rubber roof is just weighted down and not fixed)
