My new window

In some posts I have already written that my apartment is under the roof. Like a penthouse hihi

I’ve only had sloping windows so far.
At the end of June, my landlord told me I was getting a dormer.
Brilliant, great idea 🙂

Which I didn’t know, however, how long it would take. I expected a week or so, instead it was 10 weeks !!!!
First they cut a huge hole in my roof, over 3 x 2 yards.
Then nothing!

I asked my landlord when the new window would be installed. He said that the hole should first be measured and then the window ordered. And then I would have to wait 6 – 8 weeks until the new window comes.

It took exactly 8 weeks until the new window was delivered and the work could continue.

Over 8 weeks where temperatures were over 86 degrees every day,

Over 8 weeks where I could not air down in the apartment because the hole was completely covered,

Over 8 weeks where I could not use the room because I had made room for the craftsmen.

The worst thing I could not sew since the end of June. Unfortunately, this was the same time my sewing class was on a summer break. Last Saturday the course started again!!!! Finally.

Yesterday I started to put my furniture back in its place. It’ll take me a few more days to finish completely, but at least the new window is ready.

The result was worth all this, but how often I have cursed the last few weeks I can’t count.

Now I have scolded so much, now I want to show what it looks like before and after.

Unfortunately I had taken the before photo at night so that one cannot compare it correctly and I put a foil over my window seat.

New window before

Here is the new window. Doesn’t it look great? The room is now much brighter and my homemade window seat looks great under the window. Like it was meant to be

New window after

Tomorrow I’m going to the sea for a few days to relax. I hope I can bring some nice photos.
