Because of the new trim and framing around the windows - the old pieces generally didn't fit without some tweaking. I tried doing that with a combination of my circular saw and my band saw. Maybe I shouldn't have sold my unopened, brand new table saw to the fellows who did the trim work!
|I think my face says it all here. Grrr.|
|Moved further from the saw, that helps. Note the bright sun and light snow - the snow on the porch roof was melting and creating lots of ice-cold run off at that perimeter.|
The tough parts are trying to install them in the upper windows of the main cabin - I really need to build a catwalk out to those areas in future I think. I wonder...???
|Capturing my best side.|
|Still a tight fit. Using the old fist hammer to get it in place.|
|Taping the edges with painter's tape - I splurged on cream coloured tape this year rather than the cheap green stuff - So decadent! Nota bene: the drip marks down my back from the ice water off the porch roof.|
Hopefully I can come up with improvements each year.
Oh yeah, we're already 10% into our woodpile.
|Cleaning the filthy panes on our bed - only a guy would do something like that, right? At least if you look carefully, you can see old bath towels underneath!|
