Windows are really hard to shop for

We knew we wanted new windows before we even bought the place. We have super ugly jalousie windows. They’re so bad, they’re not even in production anymore. And they’re freezing.

First we went to Lowes, where we picked up a Pella catalog. Then our contractor sent us to his guys at Windows We Are, and next thing we know, we’re ordering custom Trim Line casement windows with cool dark aluminum outside, and nice white wood on the inside. They’re kind of fancy, but not like Marvins! (It’s amazing how much some windows cost. And that I now know window brand names.) They’re going to be giant and industrial, and really meld well with our natural wood-looking fiber cement siding. Will post photos after they’re installed.
