 please look only at the windows


well, the windows are done. at least they should be... when i left for work today, the crew said they had just a couple of more windows to trim out.

i'm happy. the noise-reduction is incredibly evident, and the windows are definitely doing a great job at keeping out the cold. i think i'm going to be able to stop using my space-heater at night (though our exterior walls are not insulated so there's always going to be some cold seeping in).

so, yay! hopefully i'll be able to keep these things in mind when i'm writing kingsford their Very Large Check tomorrow evening.

god, the landscaping looks like crap right now. i guess that's the next project. ugh. we cut everything way back last fall, and i guess i didn't realize how horrid it looked until just now. damned before-and-after photo...

Xta, it's winter--EVERYBODY'S landscaping looks like crap! It's not fair to compare those two photos. Lighten up on yourself a little! You've been VERY productive lately!!

And hey, congrats on the new windows!

Now that I see the finished result, I retract my vote ont he grids. I think you should have gotten them.


I love the new windows! The landscaping isn't that bad. You might want to do something about that long, black, uretha sticking out there on the front.

Now is the perfect time for planting shrubs, but if you can afford it, I would pay someone else to do it. It is too much hard work.

Everything is looking great!

I love the windows on the house. They are perfect!

I am impressed with all the improvements that you've made to your home. It looks like a new house form the outside. Come spring, the shrubs will come back. Plant some liriope (sp?) in front and whatever other plants you like and it'll look great.

How's the water situation going?

i'm ashamed to report that i haven't been down in the crawlspace in a week or so. i guess i've been busy with other stuff. but thanks for reminding me -- i'll definitely make a point to do that this weekend.
