To cut the very long story short, a while back we noticed that during some heavy rain overnight the sky light above the bed leaked a little.
Drip, drip, drip…… what a long night…….
Michele went into panic mode, we were going home, but I talked her around to at least let me look in the morning.
Fearing the worst I climbed out of the main heki, by standing on a folding stool placed on top of the dining table ( health and safety first and all )
Thankfully for us, no great leak, just a cracked lid to the skylight, so a large helping of sticks like sh.. , and we have been all good.
Not being in one place for more than a day or so rules out buying one on-line and trying to find a stockist with stock has been a thankless task
Until today, last week we, by chance got introduced to Andrew on Facebook, who happens to run a campsite, Tranquil Pines.So I asked the million dollar question did he know of anyone in Hungary who might have one.
Well miracle of miracles,he sourced us one !
So today, I had my first lesson in how great a country this is, the post man arrives, with my bill for 424900 Huf (around €125) and then gives me my package – what a great system !
Above our bed used to be a Fiamma Turbo Vent, but didn’t let a lot of light in and made way to much noise to be on too long.
So we chose the Domentic mini heki, a clear roof light that opens right up, so more light and more air flow
Tick number one it’s size was 400mm x 400mm bang on the same size as the other !
Step one, unpack and check contents ( how many times have you built a flat pack to be missing something ?)
Step eight, push the rooflight down firmly.
Step Nine, attach the inner frame and tighten the retaining screws, I as I always do did them in opposites corners to give an even amount of pressure to tighten the sky light.
Not a difficult job, even with little to no tools and in +30 dregree heat
