The Massive Window

Brett and I love the idea of bringing the outdoors inside as much as possible. We know that once have the opportunity to invest some time and money into our backyard, we will really love it. This being the case we decided that we really want to have the backside of the house as open to the back yard as possible. The dining room (Marshall's Room) had a small window, which is shown here.
We decided to remove that small window and put in a very large window, covering almost the whole span of that wall. To the right of the new window on the other wall, we will be framing in a door to walk out to the patio. That's yet to be done.

This is the view of the dining room window from the backyard. Uncle Chuck is working away.

And here she is, installed with the siding nearly finished.

I would like to call attention to the stand-out woman, Ms. Renovation herself! This here is our dear Busha, Laura's mom, our Grandma. She is an incredible woman, and has been beyond helpful with this whole project. She is the wooooooooo-man! I'm pretty sure she knows every contractor in the Rogue Valley, and is in her element the second she sets foot into Lowe's or Home Depot. In fact, listen up you eligible bachelors, she's so wonderful that her ideal date would probably be perusing the aisles of Lowe's, or the like.


  1. It looks so good guys! I love the front of the house without a garage door. You have certainly put a lot of work into that place! Can't wait to see you both. Hopefully we can make it back out there again soon so we (Alan) can help you. Seriously once you get to painting and the warmer tasks, I am 100% your girl. ANNNND I love the Busha shout out (and hook up). Love you!

  2. Hey I've had a breakfast date with wonderful Ms. Busha and it just happened to be at Home Depot. Great work guys! Auntie L
