1 down, 37 to go

There are 38 windows in this house, most of which are still single pane! The storm windows are old and need to go away, PERIOD! It’s going to take a long time and a lot of money to get them all done. So, for now it’s 1 window at a time. It’s hard to tell from this picture, but this window has a view of the backyard and surrounding area that is absolutely beautiful, especially in the winter with the snow. The single pane window that was there was so cold though that ice would freeze on the outside and you couldn’t see out at all even with the storm window on. So, out with the old and in with the triple pane! The rain also liked to blow into this window so we changed it to a canopy style that blocks the rain from blowing in.

I can’t wait to get the rest of this room done, but it too is a 1 wall at a time job. Lathe and plaster takes forever to remove and oh what a mess, but with every external wall that goes and new insulation added winter gets warmer and warmer every day!
