The job of re-slating the 150-year-old roof continues and as the work progresses, astonishing secrets of the chateau are revealed – a huge attic that not only reaches to the height of the roof’s ridgeline but runs the full length of the chateau. 

Angel hasn’t seen the room before, but as soon as she lays eyes on it, her mind goes into overdrive. Dick is keen to use the extra space for storage, but Angel’s vision reaches for the stars by creating a celestial inspired ‘sky bar.’ Complete with balcony style windows it will provide amazing views during the day and the cosmos at night. 

As Dick works out how the new windows can fit into the roof, and a new staircase, Angel finds a unique use for insulation and with the kids, turns glitter balls into planets.
