Out with the Old, In with the New....
We load up the old doublehungs in the van and take them down to the
Architectural Warehouse in Albany, a treasure trove of salvaged materials. Check it out at
http://www.historic-albany.org/warehous.html Mark the manager there was happy to accept our donation and thought he would be able to find a good home for them. We plan to return later on to find some exterior doors, and maybe a big old kitchen utility sink I had my eye on.....
Meanwhile, back on Grand Ave, installation of the new doublehungs should begin this week; the snow has subsided enough for the time being to work on the exterior.

Time to choose color of the siding. We are going with cement board siding which is low maintenance but has the appearance of old-fashioned clapboard. It will blend in with the original clapboard areas that we can salvage from the back part of the house.
