Deadline Goal Missed but Project Moves Forward

Remember the previous posts that described Scott's enthusiasm for updating the barn windows? Way back in August, it seemed reasonable that each window of the barn could be either replaced or rehabilitated by the end of September. Well . . . fast forward a few months . . . and the project continues but at a slightly slower pace. Still, let's check out some progress:

The windows on the east wall of the main floor are particularly bad. Scott took apart one of them a week ago and discovered quite a bit of rot.
We have had some nice sunny weather around noTTafarm despite the fact that Fall is officially here.
Many of the support pieces were replaced with wood from the seemingly never-ending stockpile.
The trim on the exterior will also need to be replaced. Scott had to trim away all of the rotted siding to create a clean edge.

The only thing missing from this post is the "Ta Da!" moment when I show you the finished product. Wouldn't you know that I forgot to take an "after" photo? I'll have to catch up with that sometime soon. Suffice to say, it looks great!
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
