Once the oak porch was fitted the builders added the slate and lead and it was finally finished. I was so happy with it that I came several times that evening to have another look! We have ordered a new front door as the old one has seen better days!

We were very pleased with the result and now we are finally weather proof. The rest of the walls and ceilings can be plastered.
There were a lot of people in a bad mood!
In the mean time the builders could now put on the slate roof.
The windows became smaller and smaller until we had to have some bespoke ones made which were quite expensive. We had them in the kitchen for weeks but when we opened the box we found that the measurements had been turned around and they were no good!
The whole roof episode cost us weeks of time and was very stressful. We got there in the end however and the builders had done an excellent job.
I took great pains to make sure that I chose the correct colour but they look too blue to me. I will have to try and get used to them! It might help when the wood cladding has gone grey.
