render and skylights

Skylights are in and what a glorious view they offer us. Into the village piazza we can clearly see, the barn, the farm guests and a garden soon to be. A tall window frames our only tree and provides a view to the west along the upstairs corridor.

A final render is being applied to the outside walls of the guest house, the work is hard and heavy, wet and sloppy. It is impossible to stay clean.

The west facing verandah is complete, the flywire frame too.
