Looking good Dave , the lantern will make a major difference to the feel of the room...let alone extra light. We are re roofing a similar project at the moment....the blue glass lantern were fitting for them is stunning.

Welcome back HTUK

Welcome back Dave!.
In the grand scheme of things a plant forum means nothing....despite all our frustrations over the forum it would be fantastic to get back to the level of its heyday, call me old fashioned but it still beats Facebook hands down.
