How to bring light in the darkness in eight simple steps:
Build the window frame. Careful measuring is crucial here!
Take a break to clean the gutters. Not really necessary for proper window placement, strictly speaking, but much appreciated.
Cut a hole in the wall. This is a VERY scary step.
Remove the cat from the new window opening. Essential.
Place the window. Enlisting the help of a good friend for the heavy lifting rather than working with your wife on this step is better for your marriage and her back. Unfortunately no wife means no photographer.
Take pride in your work.
Mentally prepare for an eternity of grubby fingerprints on the glass.
Enjoy the view. And the light!
Ryan did good. Real good. And did I mention he figured out how to light the oven without blowing up the barn, too? My husband rocks, people!
And never before have I enjoyed window washing this much!
