Yay! Windows are all done. In the nick of time, too. I finished the housewrap around the last in the dark as the snow was starting again.
The windows took considerably longer than I had expected (Oh, about a day’s work – famous last words). One was an opener, one was huge and double paned, and one needed the wall framed to fit it, so it was a sizable job, I was just in denial.
The opener is my biggest accomplishment. I’ve never built an opener before, and I was figuring out the hardware from scratch with no guidance (Google doesn’t always come through, fyi). But it was a total success, operating perfectly smoothly and closing tight.
Yay! It’s a major threshold to have the barn really sealed up. In the same days, HW built the two missing doors and hung them, so we are officially cozy now. It’s also much less embarrassing, to not be enclosed by double layers of poly (hey, I was busy last winter). Let the snow fly!
