The old saying it has to get worse to get better is true for our home.  The construction or should I say destruction has begun.

They have begun the removal of the siding and take out the old windows.

 Our home looked like an old shanty this past weekend with only the old tar paper exposed.

A close up shot of the window to be removed.  You can see why these windows needed replacing, they're original to this 1962 home.

The old window.

My office with the window removed.

 The new window looks so much better, even with out the trim on.  The new vinyl is so much brighter and lets in  much more light.  These windows will be easy to clean, as they have a fold down feature making it easy to clean the window from the inside.  No more step ladders on uneven ground trying to clean these windows...yeah!

Getting ready for the patio door in the dining room.  Making the opening larger and almost ready for the removal of the old windows.  Some of the electrical lines need to be moved first.

The framework is started.

The door is in, along with all the wonderful light that comes shining in!   I know I'm going to love having this door just off the dining area.

Almost every room in the house is getting new paint, but I've been struggling with the color for the kitchen and dining room.  I tell you more about that in my next post.
Have a great day!



  1. How wonderful for you and your husband, the new window and doors sure did give you more light! So happy for you!

  2. Looks like those windows and patio door will make a huge difference. You'll really enjoy the patio door!
