Our next task was to reopen the blocked up windows to gauge the natural light. I am not sure whether it was due to taxes or for warmth, but a lot of the houses that we viewed had boarded up windows and ours was no exception. So sledgehammer in hand we smashed through the brick to find huge openings with lovely views. Not being used to anything more weighty than a corkscrew I almost fell through the windows after the sledgehammer!!! Meanwhile Chris made some temporary windows and we did one of our many trips to the local dump.
