When we moved into a new townhouse 35 years ago, the first thing that I saw were the window moldings in the “picture frame” style. I said then, having been brought up in houses that were built better, that these windows needed window sills. When I replaced the kitchen window last August, I did the window with the customary moldings and sill in a house that was built before 1960 – A Stanley 55, with all the bits REALLY helped with this.

Well, this weekend I redid the moldings in the living room, insulated the gap between the window and frame (there was no insulation to speak of), and put in window sills. Yesterday, my wife told me that I was to go the saw mill (something that scares her because I spend a bunch when I go) and get the wood to do the moldings and sills for the upstairs windows. This was not a request, this was a mandate.

So, the moral here is to be very careful on the projects you do at home. Once you start, and the better you get, you will start a snowball rolling down that mountain that you cannot stop. Be careful, be very careful. Now that this is done, she showed me a list of projects that she has been building – it has 20 projects on it and she added 5 more last night – what have I started? Now I understand why she has not been fighting me as hard on buying some of the tools that I have bought of late – the woman has been planning. Be careful my friends – very careful, Pandora’s box is a small box that will keep you very busy.

I will try to get some pictures in the next day or so.
