The Conservatory…0

Posted 7 June, 2008

I wanted to take a picture of Richard straddling the roof attaching the broekie lace (filigree), but I just missed him. So, took pictures of the completed project instead. The conservatory is looking so stunning!

The last time he was up that high, he was working inside the conservatory, screwing planks or wood or something and the ladder slipped! Was pretty frightening as he fell with a drill in his hand. Luckily, he cracked a bone in his foot and had a few bruises, but nothing more. Richard has done so much of the work on this property himself that his poor hands tell the story. I’m so proud of him, he’s acheived real beauty.

The conservatory is a really special room – it is so light and airy in comparison to the dark wood of the house. We love it! With the fire going, I think it’s where we’re going to spend winter.
