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.
