To start Sarah and I welded up the frame, sashes and jamb. Then the following week we added the finer details like hinges, hardware and paint. So last week we finally did it. We cut the hole. It seemed like this day was never going to come and when it did we were apprehensive to do it. It is hard to cut a hole in something so pure knowing that there is no looking back. So after many iterations of measuring and marking and making certain “this is where we want it” we jumped in. Like everything else the actual cut was simple and anti-climatic.
After sitting and staring at the new hole we had to get back to work as the rain was coming…. Prepped the new opening and fitted the window assembly and began welding.
Once all the welding was complete we primed the whole deal. No sooner did the primer dry did it start to rain. Anxious to complete the project that weekend we tented the window off, dried everything and continued to paint.
Sunday morning came and we took down the tent and masking and installed the sashes. After a long day on Saturday it was nice to see the progress complete.
Up next, framing the interior of Red….
