Framing for the next wall plate and doing all the wiring cable lines

   My windows have arrived!  4mm safety glass on one side and normal 4mm glass on the other of the             thermal window

Cutting the recess for the windows to fit into

Trying the window for size before gluing an extra frame of wood around the edge

New frame edges glued in place and waiting to dry before fitting the glass which I will bed down on a layer of Sikaflex
