The Velux conundrum

The Velux in place on James' house    
Both James and I have had Velux (conservation style) installed in our rear facing roofs.  They couldn't go where we had anticipated they would due to:
  • The overhang of the roof
  • The thickness of the walls
  • The huge size and the purlin

As the Veluxes are going to have to be boxed in where they are the conundrum is whether we have the internal ceiling (currently flat) vaulted or not - I suspect we will need a structural engineer to advise but it seems a good idea to get someone to look whilst the rear roofs are off on Nos 3 and 4 next week.

In the meantime I have had a 2015 brick (with a 'cache' inside the brick) put into the front of the chimney to show the work done in 2015.  There's a 1915 brick but we don't know what the occasion was for putting such a brick in there.
