Ok so we’re starting to get down and dirty with all this house stuff now. James is actually demanding I engage, (there are a few ‘Incredibles’ quotes slipping out from time to time). Windows have been the discussion for the last day or so. Windows. So everyone knows you want wooden windows right? Look nicer, don’t leak heat, look nicer.
I know, we live in a hurricane zone what are we thinking, but… aluminium? I know they’re terribly house & garden but I just hadn’t really considered aluminium I just always thought we’d have wooden, I hadn’t really ‘engaged’. That was until we got the quotes in.
So I think one came in at about $80k, $70k from some other folk and then a nice little cheapy at $65k . The first aluminium quote on the other hand was a very reasonable $41k.
Ben sent us a pic of a kitchen he did for some friends in aluminium with wooden facing and you get the kind of look you see above. $24k says I think I can live with it.
