I’ve been a bit quiet recently. The weather hasn’t been very inspiring so I’ve been busy earning money this year to pay for work on the house instead of actually working on the house. Also I didn’t have any matching bricks to tidy up some of the holes in the kitchen wall – this hole was from the industrial extractor fan outlet.
I found bricks at Solopark in Cambridge which I think will match reasonably well. They are still wet in the photo but should lighten as they dry out and end up quite close.
The hole made a lot of difference to light in the kitchen. I have planning permission for a ground floor window beside the hole but a full height window doesn’t work with the ground levels and a domestic sized oven extractor would become difficult. I’ll try to borrow light from the snug and shed instead.
I’ll be quiet again for a while – there are a few similar holes to brick up that I won’t bore you with, but check back after that for the the exciting kitchen window.
