(siding will be yellow or gray)
Well, we finally have new windows! We did half this year and will do the rest next year. No, not so glamorous like new lighting or furniture. But I can't tell you the satisfaction of going from old dark, sticky, drafty wood windows to new whites!
If you are decorating a room, sometimes you have to change the bones of the
house - something we'll be doing a lot of in the coming years!
We did hire out this job with Window World as it's much easier and cheaper to
do replacements than windows with casings; we were impressed with
the quality, too.
We were also increasing the height of a few windows as well as doubling
them, which meant we'd be cutting out the walls to increase the size.
Just by this change, the rooms are brighter already!
We had short windows in the upstairs rooms. This drove me nuts as I couldn't see much when I walked into the rooms. Not until I had my nose at the sill could I see the ground. Nothing like making me feel shorter than I am!
I am NOT responsible for these walls!
Where's the gray primer?
Replacement windows fit tightly inside the existing windows.
The 2 photos above were taken around 8am! Do you see how dark it is?
A fast approaching storm made it look like night time and forcing us to
re-schedule the rest of the installation.
Ahhh.... they look so much better! The white is so clean and neat looking!
And this is it for house-bones projects for this year. From here on I'll be
painting, painting, painting....
Are you working on any 'boney' projects? Summertime is the time!
