Okay, so this window is EXCITING to say the least! I mean look at it! And, I am so happy that not only do we have a great spot in the house for a window like this but the view seen through it is amazing! In the future, we plan to have evergreens and fruit trees that will make the rolling hills and nature flow endlessly from our yard to as far as the eye can see. But, for now our view is still just stunning!

As you can see, from the photos above and the video below, this was a fun project. When you consider the facts that the window weighs approximately 550 lb. and that it had to be taken down from the back of the barn’s loft where it was being store you can see what made this a very difficult project. I did, however, enjoy teasing the guys after it took two of them to fill in my spot when they carried it out of the truck. This window was no joke!

I am sad to say though that, after we got the window in its place and cleaned all the barn dust off of it, we noticed it has cracks in the seal and there is now water and mildew between the glass panes. This means we are going to have to get a custom window made to fit the spot. In the meantime, while we save our money for its replacement, we are going to leave this one where is to hold the place. Even though it is a little foggy from the moisture that has built up between the panes, this is still something I am beyond excited about!!!
