Kitchen windows are in!

After months and months of the kitchen window openings being boarded up and blocking the light and view, the kitchen windows are in! Here’s my AHHHHHHHHH moment :-)

First the boards and Tyvek came down and Brian prepped the openings.

The first three window frames went in…

three windows outside

And then the windows…

three windows inside

Then the second set of three window frames and windows went in, and the job was done!

Now the west end of the house is fully windowized :-) I like to make up words :-)

That’s a whole lotta windows to let in the amazing views :-)

lotsa windows

It feels like the house is taking forever, but looking back to where we were at a year ago, I guess we’ve made pretty good progress – on May 3rd last year, we were still working on the garage and the foundation for the house hadn’t even been excavated…


Another step closer to the house being weather-tight and ready for the interior work. That’s where the fun starts for me, I can’t wait to start choosing finishes and paint colours and tiles!
