Finessing the Facade II

What a difference an day, err a week or two, makes! The windows are in, the new siding is going up, and we've crossed a major milestone on our way towards new, habitable homes at 45 Poplar. As highlighted in the previous blog post, the window composition is a major component of the new look of the old school building and we couldn't be happier with the result: the quality of the windows is excellent, the composition and the relationship between brick, windows, and siding looks great, and there's lots of light within the units themselves. Take a look at the photos below and make sure you take a slow drive by the next time you're in the neighborhood.

Installing the first window. Way to go Dave!
