"Through the looking glass"

At last I have something new to share with you all.



In January my new workshopspace had reached a "workable" level and I had a bit of time to start on my least favorite part of the house.
Building the windows, the frontside needs 11 sliding windows.
Ofcourse I wanted real glass for the windows I found some 2mm thick glass that works really well.



Fitting the windows with glass into the frames


 I've used a cardboard template before cutting the glass.
To my surprise it turned out to be a fun project but when completely finished it's finally time to start building/decorating the rooms!

  8. Ha J, Ik heb het gelezen hoor, maar was er verder nog niet aan toegekomen.
    I loooove your windows, so nice to see a little detailing on them and the window sills as they should be! I also like the peak into what could be the future interior of your house. Nice and clever touch!
    See you next week :-)

    1. Hi Giac,
      Thank you, my plan was to finish the exterior before working on the inside of the house. So the house looks nice although it's still empty.
      Next challenge will be the frontdoor!
