    Here are color and b&w renditions of the roof area of our church, a contemporary structure in wood, steel and glass:

    There seem to be a lot of blind welders ...

    Nah, it looks interesting. Brits'll recognise it as "very grand designs".

    I'd like to see you get up a ladder and look along the curved structure from a higher vantage point, there's some great stuff there.

    Yeah, some great possibilities. Nice expression: 'very grand design'. I'll remember that!

    "Grand Designs" is a telly programme about modern architecture where the dolt who presents it is only interested in buildings with steel frames, wood cladding and £60 000 worth of huge windows ... your church looks like most of the houses on the programme, that's all.

    Are you going up the ladder next? :)
