I guess it’s a sign I’m getting old. I’m actually excited about the new windows being installed in the basement. Seriously, it’s like Christmas for me. Yesterday, Pavel (trainer *and* contractor) installed two of the six windows in our basement and they are gorgeous. I didn’t realize just how bad the old ones were until I had new ones in their place. Gone are the old wood frames, cracked glass and painted screens. Now I have new vinyl windows that slide open and actually lock without using duct tape. Plus, I don’t feel any kind of air coming through the cracks. Maybe the energy savings will help these windows pay for themselves. In the meantime, I’ll just enjoy being able to look outside while I work.
