the day i left to go home to maryland we received our window order, these came from sierra pacific out of washington state. before leaving for the airport we installed a few windows which was very exciting. i was convinced that a divided light window was the way to go for our house. we wanted to make sure the house had a traditional feel that was still very clean lined and simple.

|we are well on our way to a real house!|
with the windows installed and the house dried in we are now able to turn on our little propane heater and the house gets very comfortable to work in which is very nice! i have more to update you on but that will have to wait for friday!
