Photo Challenge: a FRESH way of looking at things

The new start going in.

After this, when we hold an open house party, it really will be one.  The doors concertina.

I rather liked the timber, but you couldn’t open those windows enough for proper airing, and the wood had been thoroughly fed upon for decades …

Do you think it is an improvement?

  5. I’m seeing lots of window cleaning 😊 I have big windows in full sun but they don’t open, the only time they get cleaned is when my Mum visits, apparently she’s got a thing about dirty window 😳😄

    I love bi-fold doors – bringing the outside in. Your house will be lovely and light after all the work.

    I think Olde Worlde has its place – someone else’s place.
    Aluminium window frames ( I presume?) – best thing since sliced bread.
    It’ll look smashing when its done. Cracking job.

    You should enter the “Home” magazine’s home improvement competition and win a few $$$$$ for all your hard work.

    I love the concertina doors/windows, a great way to bring the outdoors in, during fine weather. I did notice the larger winders over in the side wing. In twelve months time all the work will be just a memory and well worth the effort.
