After MUCH anticipation and a few days of uncooperative weather, we finally began the process of installing the atrium roof. The team put the frame in place today - it is completely cut to fit on the job site. The exterior frame is a dark, evergreen color, while the interior is an off-white...imagine that.
Tomorrow, a crane will be brought in to lift the glass panels into place. I am hoping to include video footage of this. Each panel is about two feet in width, 10 feet in length, and weights 250 pounds. They tell us you could play basketball on this roof...makes me wish we had had this glass on our green house when I was growing up. Perhaps then our green house would have withstood the artillery fire from the neighboring walnut tree...nothing quite like this sound at 2am. Ah, memories...
Anyway, we are most excited to have the atrium in place. You cannot imagine the natural light that poured into the kitchen all day.
I promise to update tomorrow...stay tuned!
