We decided to begin the blog as an historical record of our first home purchase in Glendale, NY. We intend to highlight our successes, and equally important, explain why we chose to "do" a particular thing, or why something did not work, and we tried again. All this while keeping energy efficiency and eco-friendly building/remodeling practices at the fore of our planning and execution.

Early August, and the windows go in; framing takes a back seat to the unpacking
The window installers came by last week, and did a quick, efficient, and bang-up job of placing the nine replacement Pella Impervia (a fiberglass composite window). The crew of three (contracted by WindowRama) arrived early (before 7am) and were done by 2pm. They installed new aluminum flashing and caulked the install perfectly.
