We Have Windows!

I spared no cost in replacing the circa 1963 single pane windows throughout the house. The low e Argon-filled Pinnacle windows from Windsor are state-of-the-art and turned out to match the house perfectly in color. This is the newly installed kitchen slider.

Ben tore out the old laundry room window....

...and set it's replacement in place. All of the windows had to be custom made, of course.

Kenny and Ben "conferring" (i.e. shooting the...) outside the kitchen window. I think Ben was waiting for the wasps that he found in the wall to disband. That's his excuse anyway.

My office window going in, to replace the original metal slider.

The first dumpster is looking full!

Progress can be ugly and not gratifying...

The kitchen looks like patchwork, which is appropriate for a quilter... trying to look at the bright side and not be anxious!

The door leading into the back hall was moved to become a door from the garage to the backhall, opening the pantry/laundry room.

This door leads into the den and will be replaced with a set of groovey saloon doors I scooped up on eBay a few years ago.

This is the door into the backhall from the garage that was moved from the kitchen. Such a great call!

From the kitchen looking into the will-be pantry/laundry room. The wooden cabinet in the foreground is the only one we could salvage from the original kitchen. The idea is to make it into a laundry sink.Hookups for the washer and dryer.

Getting there!
