A busy weekend

We had a busy, busy weekend. This weekend, we finally replaced our leaky kitchen window.  Hurrah!
 The trim comes off!  Justine's boyfriend came over to help, even though she is half the country away.  (we think he's a keeper!!)
 Masks on, the siding comes off.  We were really worried about how much rot there would be in the wall since the window has been leaking longer than we've owned the house.  We were relieved that it wasn't as bad as we had feared.
 The old window comes out.
 Why, oh why, didn't we get a big picture window?  The view is wonderful!
 New window goes in.
Finishing installation
 Roughed in from the inside but too dark to continue outside
 Today new siding goes up.
 The last piece in place.
 And the vent pipe for the kitchen and downstairs bath is back in place.  Finally, I can do laundry again.
And time for a nap!  The final trim has been purchased.  The outside trim will go up tomorrow. The inside woodwork will take a bit because it has to be finished.

This is the last part of the kitchen remodel that we did a few years ago. Finally, the kitchen will be DONE!


  1. What a big job for a weekend! Congrats on finishing, and I like the double window look, a picture window would be cool but there's something about opening the window when you're in the kitchen that's really nice.

  2. Hooray! Talk about a major accomplishment...when you have to go to work to rest from the weekend.


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
