Door & Drywall

Our rear door was removed and the new wood 4-panel door was installed. It makes a huge difference to the look of the exterior. I’m thinking now that we have new windows and a new door, we may need to look into painting the rear brick since the crappy white paint job is going to look crappy.



Talking with the general contractor, the windows from Marvin are made especially for our house. Maybe many of you knew that, I didn’t. The Marvin rep actually measures each frame and builds the windows accordingly. It has been a shock lately to actually be able to open and close the windows without placing a board to keep it open or a broken broom handle to keep it shut! Although they meet historic requirements, they are also Energy Star rated, which goes with our "green" agenda.




Drywall was delivered today. They craned it up through the 2nd and 3rd floor windows. They start hanging it on Tuesday. I should have taken a photo of the truck, but I was running late for work (shocking!). Even more shocking was that I caught the Quickbus and made it on time-Ha!





PS – I decided life has been going well and went to the Browns-Ravens game in Baltimore. I had no idea how many people think I suck and other obscenities since my team is INCAPABLE of winning! Luckily nothing was thrown at me, but I did manage to knock over a Ravens fan’s coke while walking to my seat and had to buy him another. To call it humbling is an understatement, and in my foolish ways I have a ticket for the Redskins game in DC with a neighbor. He promises Redskins fans will go easy on me.

that's why windows cost so much. Custom. They look great!

Don't worry, Steve, there aren't as many rednecks going to Redskins games. They can't afford the tickets.
