One Window In, One More To Go
Today I spent 4 hours installing a Jeld-Wen casement window. Though it seemed fairly complicated from the 8 pages of installation instructions at first, it was really quite simple. Of course, I still have to reinstall the house wrap and siding as you can see from the following picture:
Fortunately, Portland is getting dry warm weather for the next 2 days so I got lucky. However, that brings a pretty solid east wind, which creates a slight challenge. The next window won't be so easy either. I have to rebuild the rough opening to make the inside trim symmetrical. The original windows had one window installed an inch higher than the other, plus one side of the bay window is a little wider than the other.
And this was done before crack was invented!
