We worked hard this weekend to get a new window put in the living area. Two old windows were removed, the hole from one was closed off & the other hole moved to be more centered with the other windows. See pic above to check out the window spacing. We are putting a wood stove in the corner of the living area so we eliminated the one furthest to the left. The next one was moved over a bit toward the left.
The scaffolding worked great
Next, a new piece of siding was put into place & trim was put up.
Only eight more to go!
The rest of the windows should be a lot easier. It is a matter of taking one out & replacing it in the same hole. Except when we get to the smaller window that is also not evenly spaced. We only plan on replacing three this year (the 2 others next to the new one). They are in the new living area. Next spring we'll see about buying replacements for the rest of them. We have so many other projects to do to make it livable, which I'll keep you updated on.
While Steve worked on the window, he only needed my help sporadically, so I began applying polyurethane the windows we already have installed in the rest of the room.
Even though we would have liked to get all three windows in, it was a good feeling to at least get the hardest one done. We had visitors on Saturday so those breaks backed us up a bit. It's a good delay though when people visit.
I can't tell you how much difference it makes to not have the dreaded CAFO hanging over us. To work on a project & not have the thought in the back of your mind that you may never get to live out your dream is great! Back to making plans for the future.
They'll be farm news all week so stay tuned...
