Week 20: gobble, gobble

I caulk the line.

I caulk the line.

As the short Thanksgiving week began, the painting and plumbing and HVAC-ing continued…

…and then…

…the glass for our windows arrived!

Glass and the friendly plumber (not Joe).

We’ve decided to go with the glazed.

IGUs—or Insulated Glazing Units—are “a set of two or more sheets of glass spaced apart and hermetically sealed to form a single glazed unit with a space between each sheet.” Cost-wise, they’re a bit more up front than the standard stuff; but the savings we’ll ultimately realize from lower heating and cooling costs should offset that and then some… and then some more (and then some more).

Glazed please (no sprinkles).

They should start going in next week… as soon as the White Dove dries on our steel spacers.

Also on the window-wise agenda in the coming weeks, the long-awaited enlargement of the wee dining room window. And just before we headed off to Mobile for a nice long Turkey Day weekend with Père & Mère & Uncle George, we spied Will and Matthew from Green Bottle Workshop discussing the resizing particulars with “Rudy the Roofer.”

Just a wee bit more…

Just a wee bit more…

And lastly (but certainly not least-ly), the ladybugs were back! In droves.

Continued good luck?

As long as they don’t bite.



Spot the sunning ladybugs.
