Windows! Double-paned! Not cracked!

IMG_3111.JPG, originally uploaded by berkeleygal77.

What a concept, right? Non-cracked, double-paned windows that open and shut. Who'd have thought! Now just a few more need to be replaced, then the trim goes back on. No guarantees for 1st housewarming party the 28th, but maybe for the one on 10/12....

PS - Yes, I altered the colors on these pictures a bit, but they look more interesting that way (won't make the judgement of better, though).

House is painted


House is painted!  Windows arrive Friday (knock wood) and will be installed for the next two weeks.  Why 2 weeks, you might ask. Well, it's because of the work required to remove the trim before installing and replacing it afterwards, plus the painting of the window frames (though they do come pre-primed.  Housewarming party to happen soon (trying to figure out when - Jewish new year holidays "complicate" things a little bit).

Progress comes in different forms

Wow - my first posting in 3 months!  Well, I've been living here 4 months now, and the outside of the house is about to get painted.  So figured this was/is a good a time as any to post some  new pictures.  Most are of the house in preparation for painting with a few inside pictures.  Windows also to be replaced soon.

Same deal as before, click on the above picture, and it will take you to my website, then click on the "berkeleygal77's photostream" link on the right to actually see all the pictures (most recent first, older ones last, including pictures of recent vacation to Montreal and Quebec City, Canada).

Way outdated (i.e. 1 month old) picture of painting. I live here now, there's furniture! Maybe next posting I'll provide evidence.
