Today, Mike, a carpenter who helped John install the other windows came by and helped again with installing the 30 degree bay window at the front of the house.
The bay window is the last window to be installed (other than the kitchen casement window).
This photo has the original window:
When Mike arrived, he loaned John an oscillating tool to cut the nail flange on the top and bottom to make the window fit in the opening between the header and brick. It was a tight fit but they made it work.
The bay window is heavy. It really requires three men to lift, but John and Mike managed to get it outside.
And managed to lift it in the opening.
While John held onto the window outside, Mike worked on it inside.
Hangars were supposed to come with the window (and didn’t), so instead, Mike had to make do with screws.
It’s another Indian summer day, ideal for installing a window.
Voila! The 30 degree 400 Series Bay Window is installed.
I plan to put orchids on the inside ledge.
The center window opens along with the two end windows.
The next project is adding exterior trim and installing the Hardie fiber cement siding before it gets cold.
Of course I stopped in Dunkin’ Donuts; today the Eagles are playing the Miami Dolphins.
