New Window Project - June 2009

Well, I have an old house (built in 1926) and as you all can imagine, there is ALWAYS something that needs done, fixed, replaced, etc. Although its not easy on the wallet, I do enjoy fixing it up and making it better. Old houses have such history and if the walls could talk . . . what a story we'd hear :)

I have 21 windows and was able to get 9 of them replaced!!! I had Champion come and do it. They are probably more expensive than some others, but I love their windows!! They have some great features. Here are some before and afters.

These are three of the living room windows before the replacement. I would have to put that plastic wrap stuff on them in the winter or else sitting on the couch was unbearable!! The cold air aould go right through them and right down onto me!!!

These are the beautiful new ones :)

The finished windows with the new curtains and blinds! What a difference they make!!

This is the new dining room window!!

This is my bedroom window before and after! I couldn't even get any air before, but now I can open them anytime I want (imagine that!! :)

The new bathroom window with the bottom part frosted. I live pretty close to another house, so having the bottom window frosted lets me keep the light and have some privacy without having to put the blinds down the whole way!
So, I have ONLY 12 more to go. Maybe someday they will get done!! There are so many things that I want to do to this house, but all in all, its a pretty swell place to call my own :)

Hi! My sister said you sent her a message. How are your parents? Our youngest just turned 1 year old today. Hard to believe how time flies! My hubby is in the medical field too. He's a surgical tech. It was nice to hear from you.
