|Two new horizontal bars, and a new vertical bar -|
the mess has nothing to do with me!
Firstly, they installed down posts at the windows - these will be spot welded to the newly replaced and exisiting burglar bars as soon as we get a chance.
And RMan replaced the broken window.
Then, our very, very generous friend, CGuy, offered us the loan of three of his five solar panels. These will be used to power two 30 watt sirens - one internal, and one external. They will be loud enough to cause anyone who tries to break in again a severe headache, if not deafen them slightly - not condusive to taking their time searching for whatever else they may want to remove. In addition, it will also, hopefully, alert any nearby neighbours, who are home, to the fact that a break-in is occuring , and they hopefully will call the police.

|Panels all ready to be taken outside|
and hoisted to the roof
I'm very grateful that I wasn't there - I couldn't believe the mess that three adult males can make over the course of only 18 hours. 18 hours!!!! I don't do mess.
|This was the tidier /more organised picture|
But, before they could put the solar panels up, the internal work had to be done.
That involved CGuy climbing up into the roof to secure the alarm in place - he's not a small guy - 2.1 mtrs (6'4") but he can crawl around in the smallest of places.
He also installed two LED lights - on the two (single) external doors - to alert anyone close enough to the house, that it is now alarmed. Apparently the LED lights can be seen from 200 mtrs away.

our bedroom door when we continue with the building
So now our little farmhouse has some jewellery - three beautiful solar panels and two sparkling LED lights :-) Almost like a necklace and earings LOL
|Note the wind in the tree - howling yet again|
- damn, a wind turbine is going to work so well....
Sad to have to take these steps, but necessary.
