Trailer Tales: Window re-working!

Heya cats & kittens!

Work continues on Glennie! I just found out there IS still a local glass place- so the door will be next up! But right now- these lovely old windows are getting some much needed TLC!

 

Have I mentioned how much i love and appreciate the Werehusband and all his many skills? I don’t know WHAT state Glennie would be in without his hours and hours of skilled handyness! Well.. actually, she’d be in pretty much the same junkpot shape i bought her in. heh.

Anyway- above, you can see an un-fixed window in the first picture. I really want to keep as many of the lovely old louvered-glass windows as possible: not just to save precious $$, but also for that awesome vintage look AND great ventilation! (one of the windows has a special lever that locks the louvers into the frame and makes the WHOLE thing swing out as an emergency exit! SO cool! I have NOT told the Monster which one, because i dont want “Climbing out Mama’s Window” to be the newest game around here!)

In the second picture, you can see a window the Werehusband already fixed- he removed the whole thing, scraped off all the old bondo/grout/edgey grossness, reframed it without rotten wood (needless luxury? i know, i know… lol!), put the window back in, and then sealed all around it with transparent caulking silicone. Easy! (-for me. easy for ME, because i am just doing laundry, and writing this, and vacuuming my car with my helpful 4yo Monster. Not so easy for Handy McUsesTools over there!)

Half the windows are now reframed, half to go! Work continues!!

Stay awesome!
