Whew! Big window job done!

I was sure there was no way we’d be able to install the second row of windows on the second storey ourselves. I mean, these windows are 20-25 feet above the ground, and we’re just two people – one of us being petrified of heights and not exactly an ironwoman. But then we got one window in…

Goofball! There was still some work to do after the windows were  installed, which I was happy to let Brian do. I wasn’t going out onto 4 levels of scaffolding and then climbing a ladder!

Now just 10 windows left to install and about a million other things to do!

    1. Thanks Pete :-) It'll be more awesome when it's done! ;-)
