Window Rehabilitation

Okay, it’s not what you think.  He’s a carpenter, and he is “rehabilitating” my double-hung windows.  With all the banging and sawing and grinding and sanding, I’m finding it very hard to write this morning!

I am a whole year into my home renovation, with no end in sight.  We are doing most of the work ourselves, it’s a slow process.  (We started in on the windows and decided it was a bit beyond our expertise.)  I would love to have this guy fix all of our windows.  That would be 15 x $150 a pop … wait, the math is making my head hurt.  I don’t even want to know the total.  We’ve already gone through the funds we budgeted for renovations and there’s LOTS left to do.

(By the way, you can’t see the floor under the mess, but that is the floor we just refinished.)

So though I live in a construction zone, and I have only about half the space I had in my former home, I still love it here in Southern California, still glad I made the move.

Hope you’re having a merry holiday season …
