Double-glazing is BRILLIANT.

Old Window OutNew Window In



When the window fitters ripped out the old windows, one of them knocked on the door to the room in which the kittens and I were sheltering from the dust. "Just wanted to show you this," he said, holding up a piece of rolled-up newspaper. "Your windows were last replaced in 1979."

Those newspapers spent thirty years providing stunningly inadequate insulation between our walls and our single-pane windows. It is so much quieter in the house now, even though the downstairs windows won't be replaced until tomorrow.


Three cheers for obscured glass


I am so excited about taking showers without being visible from the neighbour's gardens.
