You can’t really get any sense of size or space as it’s all empty, but I do love the scandinavian decor 😉

In between the freakish showers we’ve been having I have had time to do a bit more to the shed than just the roof-light…
On Saturday I managed to get the roller shutter fitted to the “shed” half of the shed…

shutter closed...

and (half) open!

I managed to lock myself in the shed while fitting the shutter and found out just how well insulated it is when nobody came to answer my frantic calls for help (at least I hope that was the reason). I had to pull the shutter out of a well soaked cardboard box and missed the box of bits at the bottom – I’m really quite worried about how many pieces are left over, but the door opens, closes and locks so it can’t be that bad eh?

Finally got a day free of rain and took advantage of my sister’s kind offer of help – lots of frantic sawing, tarring and drilling got the roof light in in a record 3 hour stretch!

what you can't see is me jumping off the ladder as the flash went off - convinced I'd sawn thru a cable

Ta daa! - just in time for the rain.

The more observant among you may have noticed the water stains all over the ceiling of my office and be thinking “well, it’s not very water tight eh?” – truth is, I stupidly left the plywood on the roof of my car for a week in the rain – where it got stained. I will be sanding down the whole office and varnishing/oiling it so hopefully those stains will go then…
