New Windows!

A few weeks ago, we made a major purchase: windows. Not exactly the most exciting purchase a couple in their mid-to-late 20s can make, but definitely one that's going to pay off in the long run. They were delivered this morning and I was definitely impressed with the hard work the crew did, and with our great taste! I love the end result.

Naturally, I documented the event. Why? Because everything must be documented.

Busting out the front 3 windows in the living room. These were the worst--we couldn't find screens for them so we haven't been able to open the windows all summer. G-R-O-S-S.
Removing the two wooden posts that framed the picture window.
Equipment that could take off my fingers. Probably best I stay away.
One completed bedroom window! This was the first one finished.
The other bedroom window. Still a big hole in the wall.
Another hole in the house, this time without the wooden posts. The cross breeze coming through was great!
Ladder not included.
Basement window-to-be. These were steel framed windows that were original to the house and had the concrete foundation poured around them. They were a pain in the ass for them to rip out.
The finished product from the outside! I love the way they look, and the grids/window panes add a lot of character to the house.

So now, our bank account is a little depleted, but the house is officially worth more than it was this time a year ago. Cha-ching!


  1. yay! Happy new windows! I hope they make a big difference!

    BTW, cute plants on the steps : )

  2. Did the window guys like getting their picture taken? You're too funny! Congats on your new windows, though! Enjoy the breeze!


Tell me what you think. For serious.
