New Skylights

A bit of a bum post, you know, no camera, no good photos, blah blah blah.

Here is a photo of one of our old skylights:

Dirty old glass, broken and what you can't see is the rotten wooden frame.

Anyway, we got our new skylights yesterday - essentially they are just a wooden box/frame with a piece of glass slid into them and narrow ventilation gaps around the edges. We have a full set of working drawings for the house from back when it was built, so we handed these over to the joiner and asked him to make us new ones exactly the same.

And they seem to be just that, except that our glass order got muddled, and instead of frosted/opaque glass, we have crystal clear glass. I groaned, nothing ever goes right, but when I broke the news to Matt, he shrugged and said he quite likes the clear glass...it's not as if anyone can see in, and it lets more light in.

So with no further ado, I give you our new skylights, as seen through the eye of my iPhone:

...ooh! we can look up while we are on the toilet and see trees!
