I promise I'm not TRYING to find the turd in the punchbowl. It's just sort of there.
There's something major wrong with each of these two windows. The one with muntins in the bottom sash is an easy fix. They've already ordered a plain sash and the nice window guy will just pop by in a couple weeks and switch that out when it comes in.
I decided I wanted the colonial style muntins in the upper panes because it's sort of cute. Being as someone ground all personality out of the house with cheap vinyl siding and no framing around the windows, I thought the little old lady could use the extra oomph of a bit of feature in the windows themselves. Think of it as mascara.
The other problem is so enormous that the entire window will have to be replaced, alas.
Can you see it? Something in me wants to shrug this off and say it's not a big deal, but what if an OCD person wants to buy my house someday, and that one wonky window is the deal-breaker? I think I'll be swinging by Home Depot tomorrow with my photos, alas. :(
All that aside, the house is SO much cooler already. The window over the sink had a big gap at the corner that was a housefly super-highway. (bless Praline's little fly-eating heart!) I bought these on the 1 year no interest store credit card, but I'm going to pay this round off with all my overtime earnings, and I'm hoping to get the remainder of the house windows done in about 2 months. Thank goodness for overtime in the summer. I will be seriously eyeballing each window before it goes in, though. Fo sho.
Overall, I'm very happy, but these little hiccups are a little disheartening. I suppose this is to be expected, a bit, perhaps?
