How many times will I be able to say – and my children happily comply – to “Children, come jump through the window one last time!”
Yes, another unconventional move on our part. See we were given some of the needed foam board. But a lot of the blue stuff was banged up. So we cut off the good parts and pieced it around the windows. The thinking being we plan on adding on the sides and it will all be stripped down anyway. This will get us to that point. The front we are using the thicker, reflective foam boards since it faces almost due south.
The windows were interesting to install. Only one is a “new” window, the rest are “replacement” windows. Once we figured out the first one they went pretty easily. Like a “wow, that was too easy, what did we screw up” easy. We still have to add the flashing, caulk and spray insulation – but they are in! Hopefully the difference of the front two windows aren’t a glaring “grate on the nerves” difference… but then again, getting them all for $30 a window, think I can live with it – and we saved enough to eventually purchase a match without feeling guilty!
