Log Home Update: Part 29
Windows and Doors

It's Wednesday and we have made some remarkable progress on the home this week.

Monday Adam and I framed out the basement windows and door. We also installed the four double hung windows in the garage and laundry room. It was a simple thing, but coming just two months after delivery of the log package, it really made the place look like a home.

Tuesday was a wet, wet day. It didn't rain but we appled Mill Glaze and bleach to the interior walls and beams to clean up the water stains that had formed before we had the roof in place along with the spray from the application of those products, we pressure washed all the interior wood surfaces. All day long I was sweeping water out of the house. (When "work" was over, I spent 3 hours with a chainsaw cleaning up some of the trees that had been bulldozed over by the previous owner to created a driveway and several trees that had been ice damaged last winter.)

Wednesday was window day. Early on Don finished the last little bit of roofing as he shingled the small fly off the south end of the gable. It doesn't really cover anything and serves as a decorative element to set off the shed dormer. Adam and I installed the French door and two windows in the walk-out basement. Then we all started on the windows in the living area. We did seven windows on the first floor and then three windows in the dormer wall on the second floor.
