SHE'S NOT ONLY PERTY...BUT SHE CAN WORK!!

Wednesday, April 9 – One of the problems Paul faces when taking on a big job is who is going to help him when he needs a second set of hands? A good example is lifting 5 foot windows up into the wall.

window

Paul and Marsha worked together to install the house wrap and staple it in place. The few seams were taped, and the windows were completed.

Although she is reluctant to “get involved in heavy lifting,” Paul convinced Marsha they weren't that heavy, and he would be patient with her. We set the ladder up so the lift could be accomplished in stages. We would set the window on the top of the ladder, that was leaning against the building. Paul then went up the ladder and with Marsha's help he lifted the window into the opening. Marsha then ran inside to check level and plumb. With “thumbs up” from Marsha, Paul would then nail the window into place.

Luckily, Paul did a good job getting the “rough opening” level and plumb so there wasn't much to getting the windows into the proper position. We followed the same procedure for all three windows and TOGETHER were able to install the windows in the remodeling job like a couple of pros. We finished all three windows in less than 1.5 hours. Not bad for a retired guy and his wife.... :-)

So the room is weather tight.

We are very happy with the new windows. It looks like we made good choices and are going to have a nice bright kitchen/dining/gathering area. Nice to get rid of that old door.

Marsha wrote an ad for Craig's List to see if we could find a new home for the door. It's FREE to anyone who wants a nice door. Maybe it would fit in you RV??? 

OOPS…..to late, the window was claimed by a young fella in less than 30 minutes.  Sorry!

Now Paul will move on to the electrical work and cutting in a ridge vent. Check back to see how things progress.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!

  1. I hope Paul understand how rare t is to get the lead supervisor involved hands on. Nothing like a handyman being complimented by a handy woman.

  5. So proud of you. We have been in the renovating business for years and even Doug said that was amazing. Teamwork.

    It's looking great.

    Maybe we will see it if you are still there come October.

  6. What a team! Most of our teamwork nowadays consists of me reading the directions and Dave following them. We get to do our first RV dewinterizing like that in a week or two.

  12. Looks good. Paul sure is a handy guy. Of coarse he couldn't have done it without Marsha.

    ReplyDelete
  13. So does this mean that when Paul works on all the jobs I gave him that Marsha will be helping.
    Wow, what a deal. You know that behind every good man is a better woman!

  15. I cannot believe how much you two have accomplished in the short time you've been home. The windows look great! Good luck on the electrical work. That is the part that would scare me!

  16. Always nice when doing a project to see the end in sight.

    Years ago we put a 3-season room in the back of our house behind the great room. We replaced a large bay window with French doors. The people building the 3-season room came to me and told me they would be willing to take the bay window off my hands and not charge me! Yea, I look that dumb. I had other plans. The original part of the house was built in 1850. The dining room had a small window. We replaced it with the bay and what a difference it made.

    Anxious to see your finished product. At the rate you are going, won't be long.

  17. Wow! I'm impressed that you were both able to work so efficiently on that window job. I still remember when Paulette and I were working together to install new tiles on our kitchen floor. Let's just say we had to call a couple of "time-outs"! The windows look great.

  18. Good thinking & planning on the window installation, Moving heavy objects is often easier if one uses their brains instead of their braun.

  23. Wow, they installed the windows all by themselves? Wonderful work! It's nice to have an all-around hubby. I'm sure it took a little bit of sweet talk and teamwork, but the results are something that you should be proud of! Stay beautiful and handy, Marsha! Paul is so lucky to have you, and vice-versa!
