Granite window sill supplied and now installed

Until i can get the builder to take out part of the wall and put in my new window i am held up. I have just got myself a 3 metre wooden beam to become the anchor for the veranda and needs to be anchored to the wall.

Until then i have had to make do with going to the local Granite factory this week to order a granite sill for my window in the kitchen. I drew the shape i wanted and i was told to go back the next day. The next day my sill was cut and ready for me. Knowing the kind of prices in the UK i know the kind of price that i would be charged but i am not in the UK i am in Central Portugal. For a custom made sill i paid 10€. Now that's a bragain.

  1. Now that is what I call resourcefulness, Peter. I hope you find a builder for your new window soon. The work you did to beautify your current window is a good thing. I'm also talking my husband to make some changes and renovations on our kitchen window. I'll keep you posted on what we could come up. Good day!
