I Can See Clearly Now

We replaced our old windows...

...with new ones! Though I liked the charm of the old wooden ones, they were too drafty and far from energy efficient. No matter what the thermometer read, the air in our house was filled with an uncomfortable chill. Worst of all were the windows by our beds - and know amount of blankets was enough to withstand the icy draft. Our new insulated windows make a significant difference and make the house that much cozier.

My husband, Mr. Contractor himself, did the hard labor - and just about everything else - but I was the official hold-the-window-in-place gal. Quite the title (length-wise at least).

Here Mr. Contractor is taking out the old window. Little Boy Blue is helpful as always, even when he's simply standing there in extra big pajamas. Yes, sometimes (often) he wears p.j.'s during the day - nothing beats that all over wrap around warmth.

Bruce wanted to help too, but believe me - after his last stunt - I don't know if his is the kind of help we were looking for.

Getting these windows in means were getting closer to being able to put this house on the market. Hooray for that because we are more than ready!!

Congratulations on the new windows. That will be nice to have those now that winter is bearing down upon you. I love the P.J. sporting supervisor you've got there. So cute! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

You found my blog and now I have found yours, we have alot in common! My park ranger husband and I are just itching for land of our own. We do live on a state park which is nice, but we want our own piece of earth. We live as sustainably as possible now. The ATTRA folks are used to getting requests from me. We raise pastured poultry, buy grassfed beef and I try to garden. Good luck on selling the house and finding your place in this world. The Park Wife
