Three years of having to wait for more urgent jobs to get finished has not improved them, almost every window is either rusted solidly shut (a fire hazard) or rusted open (and weather and burglar hazed). We somehow made it through this winter by stuffing the open ones with rags and duck tape and putting up with the fact that they are all so misted up that looking through them is rather like having cataracts.
We decided to go for sash look-a-likes on the front two windows as this is what the house would have had originally, as the back of the house was added on much later it never had sashes so we just opted to have straight swaps for ours falling apart ones.
So today was the day...I was very excited...until the window company called us to say their glass guy had let them down and the two sash windows for the front weren't ready yet...bum face!
So anyway the two chaps turned up and fitted the back three windows, meaning that at least our bedroom is now much warmer and I no longer have to listen to the sound of cats fighting outside at 3am.
Heres a little before and after for you...
