Yesterday morning, before the window fitters came, we'd put everything safe and away from the surrounding areas.
It looked something like this :
Last night (and this morning) the sitting room looked like this :
No new windows were fitted. Yes, the fitters came but they couldn't take out the old ones without breaking and damaging the old ones. What !!! ?
"No, it is not possible to take them out without damaging them"
Well, that's not going to happen in this place. These windows might not be to our liking but they are perfectly good windows and deserve repurposing and/or recycling. We wanted to reuse some of them for a greenhouse at a later stage, others we wanted to give to our friends.
When the sales representative came for a quote he said it wouldn't be a problem but there might be a breakage. You know, we can live with that.
After a lot of telephone calls to a fro (some of them with tempers flying) to the company, we will keep the new windows and have someone else fit them. Amazingly an acquaintance of ours is going to take out the old ones without breaking and installing the new ones for us.
Thank goodness it will be sorted in the end after a fairly stressful morning/day.
Why would you want to destroy perfectly good windows, that's what I want to know ?
Unbelievable ! Isn't there enough waste on this earth already ?
Okay, I'm calm.... ahuuuuuummmmm.....
