We are making lots of changes to the exterior of the house this summer. The first big project is replacing the bay window in the family room with 2 double-hung windows.
The bay was a more recent addition to the house, and isn't a style consistent with the exterior. Plus, it is very drafty.
Here's the view from the exterior. Removing the bay will also gain a few inches of space on our side patio, off of the kitchen. The slider to the left is also coming out, details coming in a later post.
The goal is to add some energy efficiency and make the side patio usable as a place to sit and watch the neighbors walk by.
