Garage – Two Windows installed – Two to go!

Productive weekend again on the garage project. Have now installed the second Velux window. This window is a centre hinged window which means you can separate the window unit from the frame for fitting. Therefore, I was able to do this one without the additional pair of hands needed for the first window ( thanks Richard ) which you can also see in this photo.
Later in the day I was able to get the last of the roof tiles fitted to the other side of the roof ( thanks Phil). My next goal is to get the ridge tiles fitted before we had of for a well earned holiday in just over a weeks time.

Garage a real landmark point

Well, during the last week or so I have been back working on the garage roof. I am pleased to report that I now have all the tiles, bar 5 fitted. This has been hard and awkward work I must say – however it feels good to have gotten to this point. Now for the other side – like starting over again! Each of these tiles is fairly heavy ( each share meter is about 46kg which is about 8 tiles) to handle and of course every one of them needed to be lifted onto the roof and manhandled into position. I now have a few aching muscles and sore hands – but it has been worth it. My next target is to get the other side done so that the whole roof is fully weather tight before the October school holiday 😉
