window progress...

We're slowly making progress on the bathroom window. Last night we cut and put up all of our trim around the window. We also had to put some new studs in the help support the drywall. Since the wall had been built out from the original wall, we had to extend the window frame to be flush with the drywall. We're not going to put any kind of mouldings/trim up for now, but instead just get it ready for when we do the more major bathroom renovation. I think it will still look really nice.
Since of course nothing is level or square or anything in our old house, we had to do some work to get the frame to look right. It's ok, we're going to paint it, so we just started filling in the gap b/t the old and new frame with some rock hard water putty. We only got about 1/3 of the way done though b/c it took a lot more putty than we thought it would!

Then we put up some new drywall to cover up the rest of the hole. Mike was impressed with my super exact measurements and cuts, I told him that's what happens when you spend 6 years in school making tiny little models....
Here's our new window glass! I dropped them off at the glass place this morning on my way to work, and picked them up on my way home. I went ahead and put some white semi-gloss paint on them and will paint the exterior side brown tomorrow. I think they look great and can't wait to see them in the installed!

Fantastic! So glad you uncovered that window. Natural light in the bath is so nice. Good you got "frosted" glass as well. It feels private yet lets in the light. Well done you!
