New Windows! Update!

Last year we got new windows on the back half of our house.

Justin & I decided that waiting another 2 years to get the font half of our house finished just wasn't plausible. The windows are 60 year old single pane glass windows that were in serious need of some tender love and care. Every year we put plastic wrap on the mesh part to keep out as many drafts as possible. With the back half being done we didn't need to do that on them as we got some serious upgraded windows. They are double pain, UVB protected, energy efficient, just plain awesome windows!

Unfortunately the front half was still needing to be replaced & we were just sick of taking care of them. We also learned that we could still qualify for the stimulus package for the front half of the windows this year. So we decided to go ahead & go for it!

We went through Home Depot again & again received very professional results. The guys who installed the windows had all 4 (very large) windows done in less then 5 hours. They cleaned up after themselves & were over-all friendly.

Unlike last year, Justin was at home this time around. He ended up taking Ian out for awhile because he was very nosey & had to watch everything the installers did. He also asked about a million questions too. I think Ian is going to end up either in the military or building things for a living. Jameson could have cared less about what was going on. LOL

Anyways, here are our windows before…

I just wanted to share because I am very excited about them. Home improvements are great! I think the next thing is to (finally) finish the half bath AKA 'the boys bathroom'. Then I think next year we'll get a new front door. Then… who knows what (we have a huge list, LOL)!
