June 2005. Preparing for the new thatch.
New wall plate, all new timber, marine plywood.
Interesting to find that both ends of the cottage are both different heights and different widths. Each A-frame had to be built with its own measurements 😉
We chose eyebrow windows. Not conventional. These cottages are very dark inside and almost always single story.
We chose to build 2 loft rooms upstairs. We decided on eyebrow windows to gain the light. Skylights were not recommended.
The renovation is now growing legs. Eyebrow windows are tricky and not cheap.
