The doors and windows are installed, though not quite finished.  We're enjoying them.  We finally have doors and windows that are functional.  The windows have a greenish tint to them; probably an effect of the argon gas in them.

The house is still topsy turvy.  Things have not been put back in place yet.  After the workers left, we had to deal with the dust.  It's concrete dust from when they were taking out the old windows.  We've done the kitchen as that was the first order of things.  Yucky to have gritty kitchen:  floors, counters, you name it.  I've vacuumed the floors where I can and mopped the front and back entries (but not the kitchen).  It's been busy, I haven't gotten to it.

Doors have glass inserts.  We're getting used to them.  With the light coming through them, we get the feeling that the door is open.  We're actually using the front entrance now.  We used to just go through the garage.  We have some stuff we have to do tomorrow (Saturday), but I hope to put up some new blinds as well as finish clean up of at least one area and get things back to there.
