Installed New Window!

I installed this window last October (see pics of before and after). I had originally posted about it attempting to get a RO measurement in this thread:


That old window (I believe it is original to the house, 1954) was build in oddly, so, I had to add some 2x4s to the rough opening to prep for the new window. I also had to add a small jamb extension to get flush with the plaster interior wall.

The newly installed window is a Marvin Ultimate Glider (Aluminum Clad exterior, Douglas Fir Clear-coated Interior).

I am happy with how it turned out, looking for some positive feedback

Looks really good, you did a nice job. The trim looks great. Marvin Ultimates are the best, IMO.
