Today I used a compression hammer to make openings and remove the old windows. My friend was coming at 4:30 and I wanted to surprise him by having both openings done by the time he arrived so we could focus on setting in the new windows. I finished the second opening in time, went inside entirely exhausted and sat down, just to hear him knock on the door 60 seconds later! It was ok, though, I get really energized with these kind of projects. By 8:00 we had both windows in and sealed. There is still quite a bit of finishing work to do both inside and out, but that can wait a few days.

|Before (well, a couple holes already)|
|After. Tada! (Still lots to do, though)|

More pictures will follow when the windows are complete.
