A few weeks ago we took some siding off of the tiny house.   Why you ask.   Well, my wife decided that we needed to change the rather large windows on that side.   We ran out of time to complete as it started to rain.  And it rained and rained.   Finally last Saturday, we had two choices:  Make the 7 chickens a new house or try to get a window in the tiny house before it rains.  Well, the chicken coup is under cover so if it rains not too bad.   But we didn't have a plan.  So we decided on the window. 

So I worked on the tape and caulk, got the screws out, and the window wouldn't budge.   Oops, needed to clear the top, and low and behold, there are 3 screws up there.  Got those out.   Window moves a little better, but stuck on the right side.  Got the window all the way out like a door, my wife holding it (very heavy), and I cut the foam insulation.   That did it,  now she's holding almost all the weight.  We got it out finally and hauled it away.   Very heavy, more than I can handle. 

We measured the new window and were off by about 1/16 so it wouldn't fit.   Had to shave about 1/4 inch so we would have enough clearance to get the new window in.   It is heavy but not as heavy.   Finally got it in, it is plumb etc but the opening is not square by any amount.  Got the window in, screwed, and taped.  Then it started to rain .  So now we have one more window to go.   

The old windows are old windows from the house.   They were nice once upon a time but no longer.   Really sad as they are wood encased windows.   Very nice.   But I like the new window better.  We were replacing windows and the contractor messed up the measurements so we got 3 windows free.   So we are using two of them for this project. 

I was quite sore that evening WORD!

Out here you would have been referred to specialist, more x-rays, a fitting and crowned a month later, then called back in by your dentist to have it checked.  Double the expoense.
