The scaffolding has all been removed. Before it went my good
lady insisted on climbing it, with shaking knees, to paint the
cottage ( all to do with her being an artist !)
The tub on the left is our water saver for when we have a rare, dry summer.
Can you identify this gadget ?
I'll not keep you guessing it is part of the innards of a washing machine.
I am going to use it as a mechanism to raise the access hatch in the meditation space
without having to climb the ladder to do so. All will be revealed on a later blog.
This is the easy access to the upper loft , the floor is actually
a lower loft in our bedroom.
The meditation space cum sleeping area.
The varnished boards were given to me some years ago,
I like the effect that they give to the west window wall, for it looks old
rather than new.
The insulation material between the rafters is eco-wool and is
made from recycled plastic bottles. It does the same job as that
awful yellow fibreglass that is so damaging to the health.
The square hatch will eventually be capable of being raised from
the floor below. First though I have to complete the panelling.
Despite the working conditions, we frequently take our coffee up
into this room, as we enjoy the energy/atmosphere that it contains.
