In this view, the big metal window shutter in the bedroom is open at an angle
to keep out the direct sun but let in air and light.
It has taken me only nine years to get around to painting the window ledges. I guess I had other priorities until now. Only seven more to go!
Looking out the bathroom window
In France, a window ledge is « un rebord de fenêtre » or « un appui de fenêtre ». Rebord means "edge" and the ones in these photos are the rebords extérieurs. Appui means more or less "support" — the window sits on it and is supported by it.
This is another in my series documenting work we have done and are doing around the house, mostly to be keep a record for myself.
