Yesterday one of the Vélux windows was installed. I assume the other one will be done today. The windows are a little higher up on the wall than I had thought they would be, but if you get up close, the picture below shows what you see.
If you are less than say 5'9" tall (1,75 m), you might have to stand on your tiptoes. Still, the main point of the windows is to let light into the room. The view is a bonus. As you can see, we had another beautiful day yesterday. You can also see the ornamental plum tree in pink flower.
Here are some pictures I took while the window was being put in and after it was done yesterday afternoon. The interior finishing has yet to be done.
The window installer saved for us as many of the roof tiles as he could. They'll come in handy if any tile blow off the next time we have a big windstorm.
There were three heavy glass tiles in the back section of roof that were there to let light into the attic. We especially wanted to save those, as souvenirs.
