Today was a brilliant day! The windows arrived from Latvia, 2 weeks earlier than expected! The last few days have been a bit stop, start. It wasn’t clear exactly when the windows would make their appearance and Monday evening we were told 8.30am this morning. It was after 3pm by the time they came, but they were worth waiting for.
It was a bit hair raising watching the driver make his way backwards down the lane, at times it didn’t look like the truck would fit, but he made it all the way, just hitting the piggery roof once on the way!! We were also a bit worried about unloading the windows as two of the windows are three meters wide and extremely heavy. They are triple glazed so impossible to lift by hand.
The only surprise was the front door!
For some reason it hadn’t registered with me that it would also be clad in aluminium, dark grey. I had assumed it would be wooden, which the inside of it is, but it’s a big, grey, heavy, aluminium door!!! HHmmm! Thankfully the inside finish is light and soft! Now we’ll just have to wait to see them all installed! Which should take about a week, maybe less!
Here are some photos from the last few days, getting ready for the windows and today when they arrived. Two of the upstairs windows were changed, dropped a few inches lower. Some of the rooms will have interesting window heights, some high and some low. We have designed it so you’ll get a particular view from either a sitting or standing position, I really hope they all suit the site and how we’re going to live in the house..
