Posts Tagged ‘double glazing’

Just what a tired Vicarage needs on a Monday morning. Early morning workmen arriving before we’ve properly begun the day. But we are very pleased. Because it’s window men. And they have come with several enormous double glazed units to finish off the double glazing that has taken three contracts and about four years to actually arrive.

So it’s a bit nippy in the Vicarage today as great gaping holes are being created as windows are removed. But by this weekend it will be a lot warmer. We are very thankful.

Windows Win

The window men have been to the Vicarage today. And not just for measuring up (as has been the case over the last four years). They haven’t given us double glazing everywhere, alas, but there are now cosy new windows in the attic. Our ministry trainees no longer have broken panes and drafty sashes, and 170 yearsworth of dust has been dislodged over the upstairs rooms, into the garden and over the window men. There are still a couple of windows to go upstairs, and another contract for the remaining ones in the rest of the house, but for now we (and especially the attic dwellers) are extremely happy to have some added insulation in the Baltic top floor.

Breathless kids called at the Vicarage this afternoon. Had I seen the broken window in the church hall? I hadn’t, so I went with them to survey the damage. They don’t know who was responsible, alas. This door which faces the playground has been damaged before – that’s why there’s no glazing above the door now. Looks like someone has been playing a rock-lobbing game. Again.

At least it’s more straightforward to deal with than the coat on the roof.
