Lean To glass roof uncovered.

After pulling down the plaster board from the kitchen ceiling we uncovered the most weird botched up ceiling and roof we had ever seen. Underneath the plaster board was a glass lean to styled roof. This was then boarded over with wardrobe panels. Including door fittings in some places. This was then covered again with roofing tiles. Removing each layer of roof carefully and filling up another skip we could finally access the roof and put on a new roof. This time with just the one layer and not 4!!!! 

I dunno what the Cornish do when building houses but the guy that put this together was... lets just say resourceful to say the least! Our roof is now being rebuild using timbers and slates and not a wardrobe door in sight!
