Big day today. We’re having our large window in the breakfast/dining area replaced since the original one had the sash in the wrong place. Difficult to visualize but there will be a few photos below to illustrate the process for our record as much as anything else.
Two guys have turned up and they seem to know what they are about. Building the scaffolding right now and will get to the cutting out directly. Joy!
I guess the cutting out is more like hammering out. They’ve been bashing the wall around the window for about an hour now and its raining stucco outside! At least the stucco is well attached and secure-given how hard it is to hammer off. Oh and a few bits of the old window are falling now–old flashing and such like.
Well after about three hours it looks like they have finally finished the window install. It looks great and we now have to look forward to getting the stucco repaired then external and internal painting and caulking. This should be done in the next day or day. Fingers crossed.
These guys actually were excellent. they even had a level with them and inured the window was square and plumb before finally fixing it to the wall. Thank goodness that’s done now we’ll get the stucco repaired and the painting taken care of and we’re done.
Prep for taking out the old window
The new window awaits in the garage
And the process begins
The man on a scaffold
Loads o noise
At least they are taking care inside
Nothing like a hammer for getting things done
Starting the flashing

And the window goes in!
