hatches battened

One of the simpler, but very effective, things we've done recently is to buy some clear plastic sheeting and chop it up into rain 'visors' for the skylights. Whether it was through the joints in the wood of the frames or under the eaves of the spine of the roof, water was getting in at the tops of the windows when it rained. Eventually we will be replacing all the skylights with double glazed units, but in the meantime, since we put these pieces of plastic in the problem has been far less pronounced. Hurrah!
