So. This renovation is killing me. And I know, right now your eyes are rolling back into your skulls, because people have much bigger fish to fry than staring down the barrel of a long overdue move. Yet for someone that loves decorating and redecorating their home (and usually redecorating it again!), seeing it in shambles has definitely done a number on me.
Regardless. This is an optimistic post. Because a few weeks ago, we had a fantastic crew recommended by Andersen Windows install our new 100 Series windows, and they are gorgeous. We even replaced a few standard windows for sliding glass doors, and I was surprised to see how smooth the installation process proved to be.
Even better? The crew was kind enough to share a few tidbits for those of you who might like to install your own new windows (thanks, Rick).
They look beautiful, yes? Of course, I’d show you a closer photo of the money shot, but alas, that big tarp on the side of the home downplays the loveliness. However, I believe in optimism, so let’s bookend this post with more good news.
We’ve officially ordered Build Direct’s Fiber Cement Siding in Colonial Pewter, and I can’t wait for it to arrive early next month! Tarp no more, and our neighbors will finally stop with the dirty glares.*
We’ll be sure to keep you tuned in to the siding process, and you’ll be amazed at how lovely our new windows look tarp-less! Until then, you know where to find us!
P.S. The toughest part of window installation (surprisingly!) was measuring for the rough window opening. If you’d like to learn how to measure your windows for a replacement, feel free to check out this video with easy-to-follow instructions.
P.P.S. Don’t forget! We’re doing a Q&A on my August 4 post. Got any questions for me about remodeling? Decorating tips? Choosing windows or window treatments? Fire away!
*Kidding. We have very nice neighbors.
