Doors have been delivered and as of last night were stacked in the kitchen/living area. Tile has been in the house for the past week or so, holding for the shower floor tiles, which were being cut down to size.
When we stopped in to take a look last night, we had already lost too much light to get any good photos of much else than the living room.

The windows have arrived! We ended up going with Marvin windows – excellent quality, beautiful windows that are made to order (read: take forever).
Two things I love most about the Ultimate Double Hung window: the one-handed tilt-in operation for easy cleaning (which means I don’t have to strain or hurt myself) and the Low E II with argon insulating glass (which means that we’ll have energy efficient windows and lower utility bills).
I stopped over to the house after work, even though it was dark, and I stumbled around with my digital camera just hoping that the flash would be bright enough to capture what I couldn’t actually see.
Wrapped and ready to go
In the living room, wrapped up in plastic and cardboard are the largest of the windows: the three-panel front windows for both the first and second floors, and the glass sliding doors for the back of the house.
First one installed!
On the second floor, we actually have a window in one of the guest rooms! The bedroom at the center of the house used to have two small windows in it, one of which was glass block (this used to be a bathroom). Both the old small windows are out and spaces boarded up. The brand new window has been placed in the center of the wall, and looks great.
It looked like there also may have been one or both windows installed in the master bedroom, but I had to be careful not to trip over debris, so I didn’t venture too far into the room.
