You. Are. My shiiinnning star....


restored, cleaned, and sealed

Just a window? Just a window you say? HA! Not so, not so! This window is an awning window secured by hinges on the outside and is 2 stories up on a hill that makes it a bear to get to. But the real thing worth noting about this window (and its twin that's not shown)is that you can see THROUGH it. Its glass is shiny. Crystal clear even.

We got these 2 windows reinstalled after their rot fixing and reglazing overhaul just before the rain started back in november. Well last weekend the rain stopped briefly allowing us to take the window out and sand it a bit so that it opens easily. Beth then cleaned all the glazing compuound fingerprints that completely covered the pane (no seriously, it was like we had frosted windows) and painted the now-cured putty for waterproofedness.

As blog posts go, not so exciting. But in our world, worthy of celebration.

Please note the SAD SAD state of the weather-beaten rafter tail of the house next door.

I should have painted their house as long as I had the ladder out. I'm certain they would not have minded if it didn't match.

I noticed you gals have a thing for windows. :-)
What I really like is the colour of your walls. Beautiful!

Ouch, that could have been our rafter tail! Do you window superstars have any recommendations for old window helpers in the Oakland area? We're looking at a full replacement in the front of our house (wood is very rotten, a nice bullet hole in the corner) and I'd like to find a contractor who doesn't just push vinyl. Cause that ain't happening. ktwing at gmail
