Eagle 2

Sorry for the delay on this. I've been crazy busy with house projects and I kept forgetting to update.

There isn't much to say about the window installation that wasn't covered in the last post so I will just keep it short and show you some pictures. We are super happy with the outcome and we are looking forward to getting the rest of the windows replaced someday.

I really like that screens cover the whole window. It looks much better than having one dark side and one empty side. 

On the inside we had the option of going with primed or bare wood. We decided to do the insides white since the rooms were white.

The trim in these next two shots has yet to be painted.

Here is a before shot of the back.

Here is an after shot of the back. I think the gray we picked  matches the aluminum really well.

Now that the windows and doors are in it is amazing how much clearer and quieter they are compared to the old ones. Also, it no longer feels super cold when you're standing next to one.

When we had the windows installed we told them that we would be doing the trim work on the inside to save a few bucks. Little did we know that his would lead us in to our next project. More on that soon...

Be seeing you.


  1. Gosh its one thing after another! But the progress looks great, power through!

  2. Looking great! One project always does lead to another, doesn't it?

  3. I like house work in progress, good job

  4. The new windows definitely look a lot better than the old ones. The gray paint matches well with the aluminum. Having windows with good insulation is certainly a bliss. It's nice to stand next to the window during fall without freezing, as you've said.
