Usually Friday is Big Project Day. This week it came on Thursday.
When I bought the 90 year old farmhouse 12 years ago, I decided to keep all the old wooden windows. Everything around them was updated. Do you see me in the window?
As the years passed, it became apparent they were not holding up. I guess the neglect from the house being vacant for 15 years, caused the windows to come apart.
I have been replacing them, one by one, as monies become available. Each one must be ordered in a special size.
Thursday was a huge project because it involved three windows in my upstairs bedroom. The work had to be timed so it wasn't a rainy day. Also the high winds we experience, was another factor.
After tacking cardboard behind the old windows, all the trim had to be removed and the the windows taken out.
Because of the size of the middle window, the father/son team decided to remove the large glass with suction cups. Safety was our number one concern.
The day before the project, I took it upon myself to primer and paint the new trim work. This saved me labor cost by doing it myself.
It is an old house and nothing is completely level. It took some careful maneuvering to get all three windows level on the outside.
How is this for a view when you wake up in the morning?
