We had the living room windows replace a couple months ago. There were a few things that drove this decision. First of all the windows are 17 years old, contractor quality, and beginning to separate from the frame around the glass (leak). Additionally, all the windows in the house have been tinted and the tinting is deteriorating to where the glass is lacking clarity.
The tint has a lifetime guarantee but the company went out of business so that's that. Anyway, we like the new eee windows in the living room and now we are doing the kitchen. These 2 rooms are our main rooms to actually look out the windows so they are the most important. The other will come "in due time".
|You can see where I attempted to remove the tinting on the right bottom of door glass. Do not attempt this at home - trust me. That stuff is really glued down!|
The color on these photos is way off. I have some pleated shades (cordless) on order to replace the wood blinds. I think they will work out nicely.
The windows have been on order for a while now so they should be in soon. It would be nice if they were installed before we went on vacation but I suspect they will call while we are gone to tell us they came in.
We got up at 4:30am to get our long run done before the sun rises and heats things up. We got 10 miles done before the sun got us. We ran along Mountain Road so there was additional shade from the mountain. The last 3 miles were in the sun but it wasn't too bad. We came home and after showering I had the most wonderful nap!
We bathed the Doods and now are getting ready to give them haircuts. It is nice to have them real short when we are on vacation.
PS - Damn do I love my new desk!!!
PPS - The sunflower in the background of this blog is actually my sunflower from last year that I named JOY!
