The primary goal is good looking windows -- the second goal is using materials that will not rot in the "sea air". To that end, we are doing the budget friendly mix and match -- hardwood for the extension jambs and sill with MDF for the inside trim. Kuddos to anyone who knows what "extension jambs" means!!! (This term took Gary a while to find)
We decided to use the back bedroom as our test ground. Gary got out his non-expanding foam for insulating the windows and started to insulate -- until he realized that the foam did expand, and expand, and expand. We ended up with goopy, yellow mess, but were able to clean it up and move onto cutting/installing trim pieces. Let me know what you think . . .
|Expanding - non expanding yellow foam! YIKES!|
|The improvement is AMAZING!!|
