By removing a line of 'tufo' bricks, the fissure has
been prepared for the outside section of a concrete
support beam. A huge hole can then be cut out of
the wall to house the kitchen's picture window.
These are the first four steps leading to
the bed loft. This is where I'll sleep in
winter (so as not to waste money and gas
on heating up the master bedroom), and
when friends come to stay.
I'm allowed to revert the small window,
that you see at the top, to its original size
which is four times larger.
Now that the ceiling supports have been
taken down, the height of this room is
evident once more.
