Fona's Basement Windows
2022-03-23 at 5:18 PM UTC
Went to the store today and picked up almost everything to replace a window.
Only had 1 window in stock or I would have bought more.
Going to see how hard one is first and foremost anyways.
Tomorrow if the weather permits it, I will attempt to replace one of the broken windows in the basement.
I bought a bucket, mortar, 2 trowels, a window, and metal cutting sawzall blades.
Before I get started I'll have to run back to the store and pick up some shims and maybe a couple cans of spray foam.
While I'm there I'll probably buy as many more windows as I can find as I'll be hitting a different store in the morning and they should have a couple.
I've already got a prybar and a level.
There is some extra wood laying around in case I need to brace it.
I've got to say, I am really excited to finally be doing this and just seeing things coming together makes me feel great.
2022-03-23 at 9:11 PM UTCI ran to another Lowes store right before work and found 4 more windows, a pointer trowel, 2 cans of spray foam, 3 packs of crappy wood shims and a bag of quick crete blended mason mox type s.
Im stoked to get started.

I'll finally get an opportunity to start replacing windows.
Even if I only get 1 window done tomorrow I'll be happy.
It's taken weeks just to get this far. Had I the time and money I'd probably be done with everything I wanted to by now.
Thankful to get to use my new tools tomorrow and gain experience in something I've never done before.
