Door and Windows

This Saturday we were able to get three of the front windows and the French doors for the back bedroom installed. Two friends, Corey and Phill, came over and helped my dad and I with the work. Having friends help is amazing because not only can we get more work done but the day just goes by way faster.

We also had a stucco guy come out, give us a quote and provide samples. It kind of knocked me off my feet because we are only going to stucco the back 1/3 of the house; only the rear add on and his quote was $5,000 if we do all the prep work so he would just be doing the scratch, brown and color. I mean, he is really only doing three sides, 23 foot deep and 36 wide. We need to get a few more quotes but if it does cost five grand there is not much we can do but pay it.

Here are some pictures of the new windows and the new door. The two bigger windows are very dirty because they have been sitting in the back of our garage for almost 4 years. They were given to us by a friend and we knew we would one day get the chance to use them. We have not removed the front wall yet so now we've got two front walls and sets of windows 7 feet apart. The old wall will come out soon but only once the place it closed up so someone could not just walk in.
