I've been working on fitting the porthole windows over the weekend and while Richard fits the second skylight today.
First I made a former from bits of scrap wood and nailed it in place from the outside. Then I squidged some render and bits of brick into the gaps from the inside, which I forgot to take a picture of. When that had set, I could take the former off from the outside leaving a lovely round hole for the window frame.
The frame was then wedged in place and all the gaps filled with expanding foam, the greatest building material ever invented.
