Houston we have a window.

Garage window is in.










If it has been me, I would have replaced the whole window with a whole new one.  Gone to Home Depot, bought a custom size window and had it installed.  Probably a couple hundred to cover the costs at least.

Brad figured if he did it himself, it would be cheaper.  He took the window apart (it's a single pane window), ordered a plate of glass from Speedy auto glass ($66) and rebuilt it himself.  Added the window trim and BOOM. Done.    I have to admit I was pretty impressed.











He had a pretty big swagger when he came back in the house and justifiably so.  That took mad skills!










It should be noted that the to do list I have been using  is actually only from the Spring.  The list was WAY longer in the fall of last year. It was as follows, drum roll please
