Glad you got it home Daniel.. Did you work around the show?
Yep, worked till noon, hit the shower, shot to Louisville, then flew back home to do evening chores. On a dairy, it's always like that old game show...."Beat the Clock"!

For those who know the place, I once worked as the commercial contracting estimator at a local Menard's store. My only advice > do the job without short cuts. Those short cuts will always come back to you later always.
Best advice ever. If the shortcuts don't come back to you, they'll come back to the next guy.

Can't agree more! At this point I still have most of the upper story to finish, but already seen a +40% reduction in propane for heating! Plus just plain more comfortable. The breezy drafts are history! Once warm weather returns, I will get back to finishing up the project.

I'll try top snap a pic after the window is roughed in.

I know what you mean, there! I've been climbing up and down scaffolding for three days now. Got body parts hurting I had plumb forgot about!
My knees aren't liking the 30 or so trips up the ladder, or the 8 or 10 trips up the stairs. But I am almost finished roughing the window in. Missed a call from Scott while on the ladder, so I need to give him a call.
Hey guys don't overdo it! When your body is telling you to stop you have to pay attention. The older you get the more attention it demands! Mine is telling me to go to bed right now. In the words of Leonard Cohen "I ache in the places where I used to play" Good night!

Not a fancy job, but the window is in, and in solid. In this area I've stripped, tomorrow I'm hoping to get insulation into areas without, then get everything buttoned up in styrofoam sheeting. I have some farm chores to do also, so not sure how much I'll get done to the house.
