Day 1 of the installation of the new windows

Today was the first day for the Home Depot installation team to install 14 new windows in our house.  The two guys working have been super tidy and so far things are looking good.  Well I can't wait till they finish tomorrow and things look done but already it looks better to me.

Here are the during pictures that I have in my phone.

 No window installed yet in the upper left window. 
 Looking out the bay window at the damage and waste so far.  Our neighbour wanted all of our windows that we were going to discard. 
 You can see RenoLab on the front lawn checking out the work and giving an approving nod towards the installation guys.

Tomorrow they will insulate and case out the windows so it will look like a much cleaner house when this is done.  Also we will have lower heating bills as the original windows and storms (circa 1895) were ready for a change!

I forgot to post the pictures of what I have been doing lately.  Well RC has left me with the kids this week so it has been tough to spend any real time on the closet.  I did change my first doorknob which I think looks a ton better than before but I will leave that for you to decide.

Isn't that a stylish door knob?!!  Ouch it just had to go and of course the one doorknob that we had purchased to replace it was from Restore and it wouldn't fit.  It had to be the only doorknob that couldn't be adjusted from 2 3/4" to 2 3/8" so after a trip to Lowe's this is what I ended up picking out for 3x the price.
At least it is something else that is done in the house.  Tomorrow we should be able to post pictures of the tree that should be back in its proper place post-window installation.


  1. The windows look awesome. I think this is the first time i've seen the exterior of you house and i must say it is quite beautiful.

  2. Thanks. I think things will look great outside after the spring next year when we can remove at least one of those trees from the front yard.
