Entry Room Window-Before and During photos

The west side of our entryway has always had a biggish window, made to seem small by the presence of a Huge swamp cooler taking up most of the opening. For ages, Zach has been talking about putting in a bigger window. His brother Eric came over on Saturday to help with this project. When they removed the swamp cooler, the whole window broke out, so then they had to do this whole project in the winter air.

It took both days Saturday and Sunday, and they finally finished at 4:00am in the morning (Sunday night). You cannot imagine how my heart was pounding as they were lifting the 4×8-ft window into its SECOND FLOOR spot from the outside on their ladders. AND, it was beginning to drizzle icy cold water which dripped onto their heads!

Here’s the view looking up from the entryway. Lots of Sky!!

Unfortunately, we hadn’t quite considered the view from the landing. Lots of roof and road. SO. It looks like I’ll be making sheer curtains, which will serve the dual purpose of shielding me from the street view as I run from the shower to the bedroom sans clothes.

Here’s the window at the dark of dawn. Finish details coming soon!

    First: the mushrooms you made are awesome. You totally win.

    Second: the photos of this home renovation are amazing. Were you running around and freaking out a little the whole time? Also, what’s the weather like there in the summer? Maybe we’ll come to SLC for our honeymoon. We can sleep on your couch, right? LOL
