This week I've continued to work sporadically on the conservatory and it's looking pretty good. My friend Swooze says this might be called an 'all season room' in some parts of America. Blog reader Denise says that 'conservatory' is also used. DH says that he wants to move into this house and sit in the conservatory and read a book.
First of all, thank you to Denise for all her comments and encouragement. Denise, your Blogger profile is set to 'no reply' so I haven't been able to reply back to you, but I love the close-up pics of your Pickett Hill (PH) here. These are the clearest close-ups I've seen, and I will definitely be referring to these. Wish I had had these from the beginning, as I have been working from low-res PH pics.
Denise had a great suggestion for interior window frames, which unfortunately would be prohibitively expensive here in the UK as the windows are all imported from the States, so I think I will have to do it the hard way. Denise said:
"For the interior window trim, using Grandt Line windows, I usually glue another window from the inside! For the inside window, you use the exact same window which you used for the outside but you cut away all of the mullions and sand the inside frame smooth. Then, all you have left is the frame and it fits perfectly on the inside of the window! "
I'm pretty pleased with how it is turning out, and a bit relieved as I've been winging it on this even more than on the main house.
