Windows

When our recent spell of wet, windy,   stormy weather started just before October we noticed that the big stained glass window had started to leak in places, leaving large puddles on the window sill.

We contacted the local stained glass craftsman who had fixed our other windows and he promised to come out as soon as there was a break in the weather.

Two months later and today we have a dry  reasonably bright day, although very cold. Fortunately he had a "window" in his schedule and as I type this  he is unloading his magic set, ready to start work.

The smaller window in my little office room also needs resealing so he will do that today too.


Hopefully we shall be watertight by this evening.  Just in time before the next band of rain arrives.

  2. Speaking from recent experience, leaks are so depressing. I hope your local stained glass craftsman (i.e. "Mr Kelly") sorts out the issues successfully and presents you with a bill for seven shillings and sixpence.

  3. They are wonderful windows. What a pleasure to have them in your house. And what joy to know they no longer leak.

  4. They really are a work of art and you are truly lucky to have a craftsman close by…..not a job for the local house window glass man. The rainy days gave you the chance to see which ones needed what done

    1. They are very beautifully crafted and we don't want them to deteriorate. It would be a shame to lose such a work of art, as you say.

    1. He is the only one here on the island so we have been quite fortunate that he can help us.

    1. There are two of the smaller stained glass windows as well as the large one in my photo. The rest of the windows are all clear glass in square leaded panes.

    2. Ooooh. Hope all the cames aren't lose and needing repair! Is the clear leaded windows newer?

    3. Yes, they were installed when the conversion was done around twenty years ago, to replace the vandalised stained glass

  10. Hoping that the windows are now well sealed, and you remain dry from now on. Such beautiful windows, but so fragile.
