More pictures of the oratory

This is a picture of my altar. It was here when we moved in, though I gave it a wash of dark paint, as one of the doors was a different tone from the other. The framing around the window will be covered over and painted the same dark brown, as will the triangular shape above it all, thus giving the appearance of a reredos. A sanctuary lamp will hang over the altar, on which will be two candlesticks and a tabernacle. A Crucifix will hang over the altar, fastened on the top of the window frames, and on either side of altar - to give the appearance of a diptych, will be icons of St. John and the Blessed Mother.

This is the door to the oratory, and the other source of light. As I do not want to cut a hole into it, I will have to leave it open to increase the light in the room. I will also have to construct a set of stairs or a ladder to make access easier. I currently have to climb in, making it very private.

This is a picture of the other side of the oratory. You can see the door to it. The small window below it is the only window to the "crypt" below (see previous post for explanation - there are no bodies down there!). Behind the oratory is our house. The red building the left are horse run-ins which the landlords use.

Another view of oratory. The building behind it and to left is my art studio. The one on the far left which you see part of the roofline of is our house.
