Bedroom Sweet

I finally finished the bedroom renovation I started in July. It was a long haul. There were plenty of moments when one of those new Hovnanian tract houses looked pretty good to me -- everything plumb and square, and built by someone other than me!

But it came out well in the end, and apart from my time, it didn't cost very much. Maybe it will turn out to be a good investment if the housing market ever recovers. Right now, I'm relaxing on my bed and feeling some cool breezes through my beautifully restored double-hung windows.

Full disclosure: David Hoggard of Double Hung Window Restoration fixed two of my six window sashes; the rest I did myself.

Here's a video summary of the job.
