Window replacement started today. I figured we would successfully get one window in, two max, and that it would take hours.
Luckily, my uncle is a window sleuth.
Chris + Pat took all of the storm windows out, while my uncle was replacing our windows one by one.
I was obviously still building cabinets.
The kitchen windows were put in first, within a blink of an eye. We were able to use the existing jambs [window framing in the wall] which helped immensely. Reconstructing the jambs would have been a lot more work and money. I’m so glad retrofitting them in, worked so well!
Before we knew it…
SEVEN windows were in place!
7 down, 7 to go! A lot of windows for such a small house!
Only 2 of the 14 old windows even opened. There were painted shut and had a really old pulley system that didn’t work too well. 4 windows had broken glass and one window was missing! This is quite the improvement.
I was in shock. I never thought we would get the windows in before moving. It’s a fairly messy project and will be so nice to have completed. We’ll be re-trimming the windows sometime soon.
Officially wiped out.
Officially going to bed.
Officially going back to the house in the AM!
Officially less than one week away from moving day!
