2 Packages

Yesterday 2 packages which we had been waiting for were delivered to The Glade.

The box was light.

First came a large flat box containing the extension jambs for the round windows in the new bathrooms.

The semi-circles are laminated wood.

Difficult to believe that these 2 semicircles cost $107.

The original windows also came packaged in "Webb" boxes.

I was happy to see that the packaging and company name were the same as the original windows I bought.

Over $100 -- I mean . . .

I’ll leave it to our carpenter to trim the Hardiebacker board and attach the jambs.

This package is much smaller than the window jambs.

The second package was sent by the tile setter who opted out of our job.  (I had sent him a respectful email thanking him for letting us know he wouldn’t do the work and to please send the drains.)

I had forgotten the drains were square -- I like.

The Schluter drains for the showers — yippee!  Check that off the list.

Do you look forward to getting packages in the mail?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. love the square drains!!! i like getting packages, but i’m really bad about opening them. hubby will usually keep pestering me about unopened packages and usually a week after they arrive i get around to opening them… i just like knowing they’ve arrived, but i don’t see the need to open them until i need what is inside 🙂

    1. I used to have a laissez-faire attitude toward packages but now I open them immediately to inspect the contents which sometimes turn out to be wrong or broken. Jo
