Six More Windows & Shutters Done

This Sunday, Brian and I spent the day putting the shutters back in place. With these six windows completed, along with the three done earlier, I'm down to 16 from 25. I figure, I can manage 8 windows per season without going batty. By the way, there is a little bat living behind one of our upper window shutter - I know because of the droppings seen on the patio, right below. I will try to catch it on camera, before it migrates.

The two front west windows on the main level.

The two south side windows on the main level. You can see one of the original shutter colours on the second level.

The two windows right just past the gate. One facing east, one facing north.

Okay, I guarantee that you won't see anymore posts about my windows and shutters... until next spring.

You have done such a wonderful job on your windows and shutters! Your house looks so much brighter and unified now! Such a lot of hard work, and you still have more to do! You deserve a break from it for awhile. I liked seeing your close-ups! I can really see the detail now. I think doing the entire window frame in white does give more weight to the windows, as you mentioned:-)

Hi Pam,
They look so clean now and they should be less drafty now that the glaze has been repaired.
Thanks so much for your encouraging words.

I love the window posts too! I think it's amazing the difference the new colour has made in the appearance of the house.
Truly, a wonderful job. Good for you!
