Windows, Siding, & Framing

First a HUGE thanks to the Construction Management and Architecture Students from UC that helped the past two weekends. These have been our best consecutive weekends yet!

The new windows look great, they are all 7" wider than the old windows thanks to completely removing the original wood units and reclaiming their lead ballast cavities into more glass. The new rafters in the second floor will allow us to double the insulation previously in the roof and vent it as well. My favorite addition is the narrow window and sloped stair wall, it really opens up what was a dark corner of the home. The bearing height for the dormer is 6'-2" AFF, but the light and space it makes for the master bed does wonders for what was an attic bedroom.
