New Black Casement Home windows

Home windows have been a scorching matter in our home since we started conversations about this renovation in 2021. Thomas is a giant “window man” and I believed the white vinyl home windows we had have been “simply advantageous.”

Aside from the upstairs major suite the place we had ONE window earlier than. 

Earlier than:

White sliders. Enjoyable truth: the one within the dormer was put in the other way up!


Progress shot: There’s nonetheless a variety of paint / ending that should occur!

I used to be improper! 

Actually, I simply didn’t need to spend the cash (a BIG portion of our price range) changing what I thought of to be “simply advantageous” home windows. However now that I see and really feel our new home windows, I’m very glad we upgraded to the very most interesting home windows. 

The brand new casements

Except for not loving low cost vinyl, Thomas could be very massive into the home’s envelope, vitality effectivity, and draftiness. He additionally haaaaaaates sliders for some cause. The brand new home windows are prime of the road casements. 

Thomas writes: “The cladding on the outside is aluminum that’s principally zero-maintenance and really sturdy. Wood frames make for a really strong/useful window. And the glass is low E-4 glass, which displays warmth in the summertime and helps maintain warmth inside within the winter.”

Can we speak concerning the colour black!?

We made a daring selection going with the black, however we LOVE them! If we hate them in 10 years, we’ll simply promote the home! Haha. However I nonetheless see black as a really timeless colour even when the black home windows pattern begins to fade over time. It appears to be like even sharper with the lighter insulation and drywall getting into.

They’ve been chipping away on the home windows beginning with those that have been open air after which doing those that had previous home windows in place. They only put the previous couple of into the boys’ rooms final week.

The Facet Porch Home windows

Once we debated what sort of home windows to do the place the previous storage door was, I actually wished three in a row. (Really I wished an octagon or circle port-hole model, however Thomas mentioned he “doesn’t do these,” haha.)

Sure, it’s driving me bonkers, however I get why it has to remain on till we transfer in!

Are we portray the home?

Now we have been debating whether or not or to not paint the home white for months. Thomas and I each shuttle! We each like the grey, which is Sherwin Williams Fawn Brindle. However we additionally each love white brick. I did just a few Instagram polls and also you guys are cut up 50/50 on white vs. grey! In order that was not useful – haha. It does appear that folks I speak to in particular person are leaning grey, and naturally conserving it grey is the straightforward (= cheaper) factor to do, in order of right now that’s the plan! The siding will probably be white!

Basement Home windows

We’re not at present changing the sliders within the basement, largely as a result of you’ll be able to’t see them from the entrance of the home. We might 1) paint them black in some unspecified time in the future, or 2) exchange them. However for now they’re staying white. Sorry yard view!
