Windows on site

The windows arrived today. It was a real thrill to see them all arranged on the truck. The three guys delivering them came 90 minutes earlier than expected and I was the only person at 555, so I oversaw the unloading and signed for the goods. Shortly after they left, Sasaki-san and our “sash man” turned up (actually before the appointed time) and did a check of everything.

It was exciting to see these windows in real life after so much time spent poring over the YKK catalog. I had no trouble identifying each: the wide thin one that goes over the bed; four matching in the doma; the massive dining room expanse; two the same for the west wall; the little one for ventilation over the fridge.

They look great and I can hardly wait to see them all in place. For now, they are neatly propped up in the living room.
