Window to the World

"Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words
That you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your innovation"
Natasha Bedingfield

This week I met with window contractors. Wow. Window options seem endless. And expensive. We are replacing all of the original 1962 single-pane windows, enlarging several and adding three sets of patio doors. The cost is approximately ten percent of our overall budget, but the payoff is that our heating/cooling costs will be reduced and there is an 80 percent return if we ever decide to sell the home.

Here are some rooms that have inspired my ideal windows:

On another note, I've decided at the last minute to stay behind while my family is off to Monroe Mountain for the Labor Day holiday. My plumber will be at the house today, and I get to do a walk through with him and pick out my fixtures. Here's what I will be missing out on:

To cheer myself up, I'm going to treat myself by going here!
