It's starting

Got the call today, windows and cedar being delivered tomorrow!  Everyone thinks I am crazy to paint the new windows but it's what I've always been thought as anyway.  He is giving me a day to prepare, prime, and get a coat on the frames before installation.  The sashes rotate so I can install the screens and turn the outside in to paint later.  I know the painter can do it but this is so much easier without ladders.  We aren't having the back of the house changed since it faces north and those windows aren't warped.   Starting early tomorrow I need to remove the curtains and wooden rods, clear those walls of furniture on both floors and make a decent mess.  I was so hoping this could be completed by now so spring cleaning and cleanup would be done before summer, but the weather would not cooperate.  But it's happening!  And he has a really big metal square!  And a 4' level!  Yippe ki yay baby, he knows what he's doing!  Hopefully it's not for appearance sake only.   Wish us luck!

I do wish you luck. It is so hard to find quality work now a days. We have our own plumbing business & my husband gets so upset when he sees people not doing quality work. I can't wait to see things when they are all finished. I love the pics of your home that I have seen. The style of your home is my dream home. I live in Kansas & you don't see it. I have always loved that style & hope to some day have a new home.
