This weekend we started the process of getting new windows for our third floor. Woo Hoo! AND ... the people-more-knowledgable-than-we came out yesterday afternoon to measure. Next, we will go to Lowe's and choose which windows (exactly) we want. Then, the windows will be officially 'on order' and, finally, someone-with-more-time-than-we (also, someone-whose-job-it-is) will come out and install them.
(Not to worry, we aren't farming out all of the home improvement chores. But delegating one that involves large pieces of glass, openings in our home and a three storey distance to the ground seems like a pretty reasonable idea. If you ask me. Which you didn't. But. Well. I'm just saying.)
We are also moving toward some significant changes in our backyard area. However, we still have a hot tub that is not on our list for long term ownership. Any takers?
