New Windows!!

I have been reading blogs about all these fancy remodeling project that everyone is doing, and since I want to sit at the lunch table with all the cool kids, here are some pictures of the new windows we had put in. Notice the use of the phrase "had put in". If I have learned nothing else about myself, it is that projects that require more than my rudimentary concrete and framing skills are best left to those who understand that if something doesn't quite fit right, all you need to do is apply more force...

So here is a shot of our bathroom, with the curtains removed and ready for the pro's from Dover to come and take out the old windows and put in the new.



Understand now, this is a scene that we never saw, because we like to bath and shower without the rest of the neighbors who are 10 feet away watching. It's not that I am against nudity, I just hated all the pointing and laughing... So the curtains were permanently drawn.

Here is the new scene.



And here is a closeup of the great pattern in the frosted glass.



Pretty shweeeeet, huh? Now the bathroom is all lit up and we really don't need the lights on during the day.

We also had two front living room windows replaced, but the old looks just like the new.



The old windows all around are pure crap, and the new are triple thick with a layer of heat reducing material in them. Should be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

  1. I was wondering, in that first photo, how good a view your neighbors had. I like the frosted glass in the new windows.

  2. Very, very nice. You do realize that the neighbors will go crazy trying to figure out if that vague silhouette that they see is male or female.

  3. Bubs: They could stand on their deck and count individual pubes...

    Dave: thanks! It is vague enough that all you see is a shadowy figure.

  4. It's always embarrassing when the first thing you see in the morning is your neighbor's ass.

  7. Pistols: We now live in an ass-free zone.

    SG: You are always welcome, as long as you bring the chocolate covered bacon!

    Lady: Nah, not really. They still get to see me through the other windows.

  8. "ready for the pro's from Dover"

    Leave it to you to drop a M*A*S*H* joke in a story about new windows. You never cease to impress me.

    And while the new windows are frosted, I'd bet money you still leave naked ass-prints on them anyway just to taunt the neighbors, and the cold glass feels good first thing in the morning.

  9. Doc: Thank you sir, high praise from a funny man like yourself! Oh, and I never press anything against the cold glass. I am too concerned with shrinkage...

  12. I like the new windows. The old bathroom windows are good too, if you were living with a few acres of land and no neighbors right up your ass.

  15. GKL: Candles...I smell something burning...

    Scarlet: Thanks for dropping by!

    Teri: The only way we could afford the house is in a neighborhood where they almost touch each other.

    Genn6: Thank a bunch!

    Suze: I know you have web cams hidden someplace, I just haven't found them yet.
