The Heat Gun Rises Again

Yes I finally worked on the friggin bathroom window. Its now uglier than it was but at least it works.

If I buy nothing else at the fancy hardware store in Oregon I know I'll be buying a new latch for the window. The one we have is done. Now that the window opens nicely you still have to push in it to get the thing to go in right. The husband offered to take it down and grind the notch but I declined. I just want a new one.

Side note. The window had so much old paint on the outside that I ended up having to go out there and scrape. As if i was not already annoyed enough. I was scraping paint off the window from 10 years ago? It was the old green trim. Ugh. And to top it off the screen guy nailed the screen in.

It took me 2 beers to get over the whole experience.

Have you considered listing it in the Home Name Registry? I think your home is perfect for it.
