After we waited for weeks-on-end,
our replacement windows finally arrived at Home Depot last week!
We chose American Craftsman windows from Andersen.
We considered this grill configuration:
But we decided upon this simpler ‘Farmhouse’ grill, instead:
We sprung for grills which rest outside the glass,
hoping it would make the windows look more original.
Here’s our kitchen window,
which was switched from its original single self
to a pair, side-by-side:
That item on the roof is a solar tube
for adding light to the kitchen below.
Next up, one of 2 large bays in our house.
This one is in the dining room,
which is next to the kitchen.
The front bay which is in our living room:
I know this is premature,
but for both bays, I would love to have old-school shutters
on the lower sashes, like here:
You don’t see these all that much, but I still love them!
I think they look good from both inside + out.
$ $ $ $ Stay tuned, though. $ $ $ $

Meanwhile, while the windows are fab,
the rest of the house is still looking pretty hiddy.
After foam, bats + blown-in insulation,
they’ll wrap the house before winter.
I can’t wait until spring, so we can add siding!
I’m still undecided on what color, although gray is my fave.
And seriously, wouldn’t gray siding complement
the colors of that groovy stone foundation of ours?
I’m a fan of shingle siding on a Dutch colonial:
It’s more spendy than clapboard,
but maybe we could do just the second story gables, like here:
Hurry, spring — am I right?
