All three windows are in!!!
Tomorrow I will finish them out and trim the outside. Hopefully they will like nice when done.
I'm really itching to get this shop finished to the point I can work in it. I know my friend Bill is. He just got a large order for restored furniture and I know he is going to need the help and I have orders coming in as well.
This is the first window that went in. Now it has hinges and a handle.
Right now I have it held open with wire, but that will change after a bit.
It helps a lot with air flow and today was the first day it wasn't stifling in the shop.
Also, you can see one of the two new shop lights my father-in-law gave me. The other one is in front of window number two.
Window number two - same setup as the first one.
You can just barely see the second light also.
BTW - did you notice the trees right outside the windows!
This next one was the biggie...I have never cut a whole in a wall before and it was an interesting task.
So now, for the first time, one can see out from this side.
You've got to love the view!
I think this is going to be a great view while working on projects. My main work table will be in front of this window.
Oh yeah...the blue thing is a load of lumber and glass covered by a tarp. I've been slowly watching it sink with all the rain we've had.
Speaking of rain - there are tornado warnings here in Kansas tonight already.
And last but not least, here is the window in place!
We are not sure where this window came from. it was one of them that we found in the shed when we bought the house. I do know that I found a fancy sash lock dated 1873 on it.
Well, that's it for now. Can't wait to see what all I get done tomorrow. It really helps when you have some kick ass CDs to listen to while working.
Till next time....
