New Windows!

Wow — I cannot believe it is the Friday before Christmas already!  Where did the week go?! Well, if you are anything like me, you spent the week running all over the city getting gifts, crafting, wrapping, standing in line at the post office…  Goodness, I am ready for a N.A.P.

BUT, before all that Christmas madness, Mr. Fixer and I had the wonderful weather opportunity to install our new windows!  Even with the building wrap exposed and the trim/siding torn off, the house has gone through an amazing curb appeal transformation.  This especially feels good because we are no longer just tearing down the old, we are actually putting in some new!  With such a huge undertaking like this fixer, let me tell ya, this feels goooooood.

Our wonderful friends Samantha and Guillaume were incredibly helpful for this project — thank you, thank you!  Even during the downtime where Mr. Fixer was the only one capable of doing anything, they helped with yard work and clean up.  AND, that’s not even the best part — Samantha made homemade pizza for us later that night!  Boy, how did we ever get so spoiled?! 🙂

I hope you all have a wonderful pre-Christmas week!  Enjoy your time with family and friends, count your blessings, and try to take at least a few minutes to remember the true spirit of this great holiday.  Now about that nap…

I think Samantha might be saying something like, “I’m so cold!” 🙂







Guillaume is getting out some much needed post-finals aggression.

What a difference all that yardwork makes!



Reframing large window

We decided to raise up this window in lieu of ordering a custom, tempered glass replacement.

    It looks so much better with some of the bushes removed out front! I am truly amazed at the progress you are making and I am so excited for the end result!
