As a favor, can we maybe not head down the road we're heading in this thread?

Oh no, the hall monitor is here......I know you'd never do anything dishonest.

Enough said, good luck with the house. It looks amazing.

Just got home from a visit.

The rest of the custom side windows arrived and got installed:

Opens up the upstairs "office" (windows overlooking the runway delivered but not yet installed):

Image

Upstairs bedroom window installed and siding finished on two sides:

Insulation install ongoing.

Bit of a delay getting the electric for the septic pump approved, before they can do a final inspection of the septic and drain field to close them up.

Baby steps...

Looking great Eddie, it's coming along nicely.

Everytime I see it I think you're building a Bob Evans and not your house. :mrgreen:

The Bass Pro Shops look a bit "rustic" to me, the Bob Evans are red with a tin roof just like your home. :mrgreen:

Keep up the great work.

Fly in and get "healed" today. Don't forget your checkbook. :shock:

I rather it be a Bob Evans so there is a restaurant on the field. Who doesn't love a good restaurant on an airport? :mrgreen:

Sorry Eddie, I couldn't resist. A Bob Evans or not I'm still jealous of your beautiful airport home.

I'm at home, but got a text with a photo from the contractor a little while ago, asking me to look at it and call him.

I was surprised that a crew was working on Memorial Day. Among other things they installed the upstairs office windows and the downstairs sliding glass door.

But as soon as I saw the photos, I thought, "YIKES!"

Something's going to have to be done - the misalignment of the custom window and the 3-panel window would bug me forever, and the contractor agreed and apologized.

It's the 3-panel window that can be moved before the siding goes up - probably tomorrow.

I'm thinking the options are (all relative to the exterior view):

1) Center the window so both ends of the custom window overhang equally. We could even add faux "shutters" to make things line up.

2) Line up with the left side and not worry about the pointy end overhanging a bit.

3) Line up with the right pointy end and accept the overhang on the left.

If anyone is bored and has mad Photoshop skilz to help me visualize, that would be great.

Aesthetically, what do you guys think? I need to let the contractor know by morning.

Oh, and I also sent him this:

An old instructor told me she had a plane at one time that had a placard on the panel that said, " Before you do something dumb thimk". She also said that that airplane wound up at the bottom of the ocean somewhere off the west coast.

I would favor lining up the rectangular windows with the long edge of the tringle (I believe that's option 2). The pointy end would then appear to be poised for takeoff.

My favorite panel placard (also on a fellow flight instructor's plane) said "if you care to smoke, please step outside."
