Windows on the World

We get new windows today! the whole front of the house is getting new ones, actual thermally sound windows! The ones downstairs are the original ones and I think 100 years is enough. The upstairs ones are children that are only about 60 years old!I can't wait to have windows that open and stay open, windows that don't have major drafts, windows that block some sound etc etc

During our earlier renovation we waffled about changing the front door to the side of the house and adding a side porch. We knew we'd never sit out there though, and after living with the house post renovation, there really is no point. So it was finally time to get the front windows done, deal with the aging shake siding, and get a new front door. Sadly the shakes didn't dry looking very good after being washed , too hard imho but ... So it was paint time.


The front door has been chosen but the color is still up in the air. I want to see the windows and the final look of the repainted shakes to make up my mind. With the front garden cleared and the tree trimmed it's looking like a new(er) house.

Oh, I bet those are going to make such a huge difference in the winter.
