Ho! Ho! Today, Tyvek and hanging three windows.... SO simple because I
I did everything right.... la...deee....dah... Heck... I need to make
some drip rail, might as well move the jointer and tablesaw out to the new
space since hanging those windows could only take a short time.... Probably
won't even finish the second cup of coffee before it's ALL DONE! Certainly!
TODAY, Saturday.... this'll be the easiest day of working on things in more
than a week.
twice, cut once, isn't that the mantra? I thought I had three(3) SQUARE (ie
same dimension, vertical & horizontal) windows 35 and 1/4 inches. Can anyone
tell me WHY the hell, today, now, I discovered that I've framed and rough
cut out THREE (3) openings 38" tall by 43 1/2 wide? It gets worse.
I only have TWO (2) windows 35 1/4 square. I *thought*
I had three (3), I
was SURE I had THREE (3).... Heck, I didn't even check when ROSE, my LOVING
WIFE said "Are you sure you checked ALL of the window dimensions?" Why?
Because I *KNEW*
that I had THREE (3) 35 1/4" SQUARE windows, so, you see, I
didn't NEED too... Even though I *KNOW*
that when the wife asks a retorical
question with that leeeeedle....are you sure.....sound in her voice.... I
darn sure better check... why..... because.... SHE'SUSUALLYRIGHT!
So... I have TWO (2) 35 1/4" SQUARE windows. I don't have any, none, zip,
nada, ZERO, (0) windows that measure anything REMOTELY close to 38 by 43
1/2. Do I *KNOW*
why the hell I framed out THREE openings with enough lumber
to distrupt the timber futures market? No. Did I do a good job framing
those openings - yes! Heck, I've got nails, construction adhiesive and
headers longer than an aircraft carrier up there...
have one (1) window 24x48". I *DO*
have TWO (2) (not three , if
you're wondering) windows that are 35 1/4" SQUARE. I do have TWO (2)
windows 24" wide and 40" tall. But, I *DO*
NOT* (repeat) DO NOT have ANY
windows at all that measure 38" x 43 1/2". NONE of the windows I have will
fit the openings that I created without.... more work...
So, I am looking at a deficit of ONE 35 1/4 square window and a surplus of
one 38" x 43 1/2" hole. If any of y'all need some space of 2 3/4"x 43 1/2"
and 8 1/4" by 38" and you have ONE window, 35 1/4" SQUARE... Let's talk.
Of course, I should probably let you talk to my wife and you would probably
be better off measuring the damn openings yourself.
