In other news, my daughter had her first haircut (at three-and-a-half), and we have been forced to do some window replacement on our 15 year old house (GGRRR!) due to rotten sills, (due to the worst windows ever manufactured)- so it has been an exciting week. I won't even tell you how many more windows we have left to replace. If the previous owners are ever within arms reach I will slap them. Hard.
Luckily the wee one was very happy with her 'trim', and wanted to show everyone her lock of lopped off hair.
"The Super" is pictured above assessing the situation.
We have some paint samples up on the wall, cause ya know....might as well paint the damn room since we are already making a mess of things. I am thinking the bright blue, second from the bottom.
The men are getting ready to rip out the old and are assessing the extent of the rot, things were still looking bright at this point:
And then, not so much.
Two of the three windows had leaked for long enough that there was rot to be fixed in the siding. Luckily the sides of the house are shakes, things won't be this easy if there is rot on the front of the house as well. (I didn't take a picture of the 'before', I am not looking to remember the sight of my naked house, plumbing and framing exposed to all.)
And now for the big reveal........
3 NEW WEATHER-TIGHT WINDOWS!!! (YAY!)
Phew, thank-goodness for good help. Three down, too many &*#*ing more to go.
