Kitchen Skylight Removed
Richard Cannon

At the end of the winter it was noticed that rain was leaking into the kitchen from the skylight. As it was serving little purpose and had given trouble in the past it was decided to replace the skylight with a plywood panel.

Brian Clements found that most of a 75mm x 50mm beam had rotted away and needed replacing making it a bigger task than expected.

Richard was in the process of replacing the roof on his garage so had the materials and gas torch to cover the ply panel to the same standard as when the roof was recovered.

The roof looks in excellent condition and we hope for many trouble free years. It is 9 years since the East end was replaced and the West end was done 3 years ago.
