New Windows

We put some new windows in the house. I really love them!! This is the old bay window that was in the living room. We decided to not put a bay window back in. After the window came out we saw alot of nasty hornets nests. Chris REALLY hates hornets. I think he must have had a bad experience with a hornet or bee at some time in his life because he really goes nuts when they are around. I remember one time when I was a kid I was outside with my mom and she was hanging clothes on the line and then a hornet was buzzing around me and she started to chase me with a broom to swat the hornet. I'm sure there is more to the story but this is all I can remember.

This is how the new window looks from the inside and yes, it was raining when we were putting in the windows.

Next came the trim. After we sprayed them with the varnish stuff they had to dry. So where do you put all this trim to dry? Well you lean it all against the house of course!!
Our poor bikes are just yelling at us to ride them!! Not until all the work is done!!

I'm glad my house wasn't the only one without windows in the rain. Our trim is the next project, at least I can do that myself.... maybe? John doesn't like me to do this stuff without him supervising, he's a freak when it comes to windows and stain.

Updates on the house are always fun, good luck.
