We Have Windows!

From Janelle:

After 6 months of measuring, narrowing down brands for the best fit for our style, visiting showrooms, measuring, comparing prices and quality online, measuring, copious amounts of emails between us, the designer, the contractor and “The Door Girls” as the contractor calls them, and a final measurement with all parties in attendance, we placed an order for Fleetwood windows and sliding door system.  After waiting for two months for them to arrive, another month for the project to start, and then two more months while the project progressed and we lived with boards covering our openings, the windows are IN!  I’ve lost track; how many months is that?  I think nine.  I could have had a baby by now!

They do look beautiful…..

 From Lewis:

OK so the screens look ok.  I’m sure the “Close the damn screen, there is a bug in the house” argument will last forever but it is still cheaper and easier than having a baby!

 From Janelle:

Oh, right.  We argued whether to “have or have not” screens.  I won that battle.  I freak if there is a fly in the house; they are disgusting.  Even Lewis has admitted that the screens are barely visible.  Let’s hope no one walks through the slider screen!

    Woo Hoo… Let There Be Light! Good luck with the bug issue though because that battle will probably go on forever. Take it from me because I have first hand experience with that one.
