Aside

Real size brick laying, rubble clearing, large stone gravel laying and endless gardening out of the way, I’ve finally had a chance to get back to the large window parts.

Cardboard arch as header to give shape to top curve of surround

Finishing ‘full stops’ with markings at each end of arch added

One side of the window is on a curve so the header idea is a bit of a gamble with one side distorted, but certainly looks better with the finishing edge being added, lopsided or not.

Having got the bit between the teeth, I went on and started the job with the other window, cutting through the wall to make a space wider than the two frames to be added so that a pillar of sorts could be built between them.

Newly inserted with central gap to be filled in as a pilaster

Will make the pilaster from wood faced each side with white wood filler and coloured to blend (hopefully).

The three window frames are from Romney Miniatures and can be bought with or without ‘glazing’.

Back to work with the window
