Category Archives: velux

weve done a bit this weekend so heres a photo of the inside of the velux with the first level of insulation …… once this is all finished i shall put another layer of insulation probably rockwool before putting up the plasterboard walls

aswell as that ive started preparing the stonework … you can see from the before and after shots the old mortar needs to be chopped out and then the stone needs to be cut in order to give enough of a key for the jointing compound to stick so this is a slow physical job done with a club hammer and chisel …. but ive done countless hours of this at work so its almost nice to do the job for myself for once……


quelque photos de travails ons fait ce weekend voila le velux et le premier couche d’isolation mince aapres sa je pense je va faire un dexieme couche d’isolation probable avec laine de verre…. je fait le preparition de pierre aussi …. cest un boulot dur avec un macette et un ciseau …. il faut enleve tous les anciens joints et apres cisle le pierre pour le nouveau joints accroche bien….. je fait trop de cette boulot au travail donc cest presque un plaisir a faire le meme boulot pour moi….. mais regarde avant je peux install un insert il faut je fait le reparitions de la mur de chimney ….psssk encore du boulot

as you can see the chimney brest is in need of repair before i can consider putting in a wood burner so this will have to be next on a very long list

apart from that i think i shall be putting up some more videos now that i’ve worked out how it all works so that should be amusing


je pense je va amuse a mettre des videos maintenant je comprendre comments sa marche sa va etre marrant


as you can see the other side of the chimney needs jointing aswell but it is not very accessible anyway the weather forecast isnt good this week so it will have to wait for a while…. in the meantime ive ordered a wood burner for the house so i shall be concentrating on jointing up an inside wall in the same way as the chimney has been done. 


sa reste le pinion a jointe mais elle est bien inaccessible et on a un semaine pourire a venir donc il faut sa attendre pour le temp revien muir …. mais sa m’arrange je commence a faire jointe un mur l’interior en preparition pour mon nouveau insert … normalment je va avoir cette semain si le livraision arrive


my colleague loic insisted on doing some work on my chimney a couple of weekends ago and has done a very good job of jointing up the chimney both inside and out



ton ton loic ma fait un trop bon boulot sur mon chimney chez moi ici semain dernier je ma deprime depuis je ma fait chie au boulot jai hate pour avoir un vacance

ive had some more time on the roof at home ….. its coming on but lots left to do…. the chimney needs some work the guttering needs finishing as does the rest of the tiles ….from then on its scaffolding moved to he front and on to the front of the house but for now some pictures of the rear of the house with vents for the vmc, and toilet fitted along with two new velux’s…. we’ve gained lots of light in the house with the fitting of the new windows …. back to work tomorrow and hopefully get some time to continue here


voila j’avance ici…. jai le chimney a refaire les joints, le gouttier a fini, quelques ardoise a poser et apres il faut je bouge l’echaufadage et commence le devant mais pour l’instant je suis content ons gagne beaucoup lumiere dans le maison avec le nouvelle fenettres
