The big windows
In putting in new windows around the house, the large upper group on the porch represented a serious challenge. The windows were framed at the factory, which helped in proper sizing.
Some of the existing wood around the openings needed an upgrade and replacement. Peter and Mike work to do so on a cold, windy day.
Paul and Mike haul one of the new units, while Peter waits on the scaffolding. They are double-paned and heavily insulated.
The three carpenters "gently" ease the windows into place. Obviously, this is not the time for a crack or fracture. It goes without saying that these are very expensive!
Thankfully, no mistakes so far....
Peter prepares the final opening with the last pane to be inserted visible on the porch floor.
The whole job was completed successfully! Whew!!
