Gallery Window

Before I get too much of the roof done there's a very tricky, and very important, bit of the house to add on - the long gallery window at the back.

A couple of the houses along the row in front of Goat Cutting have this very distinctive feature.

The way I tackle it is to fabricate what is basically a ladder from styrene strip which I glue into position before fixing the slab of roofing slates on top.

Because these window are tucked up under the slates like this the overhang gives the impression that the panes are almost a square shape, but of course they're not.

Now that this bit's done I can really begin to see the finishing line of this project.
