We decided to replace the old single pane windows in the old homestead. Here is what the original mobile home windows looked like:
We removed the shutters and about 100 screws holding in the old window and popped it out. We replaced the windows while the weather was cool so we would not waste more energy than needed.
We took about an inch off the window board:
Then we slid in the new PlyGem double pane tinted windows.
Applied the cedar trim and sealed it up. We will paint it when we do the whole house:
We got these windows at HD for about $100 each. To us they are well worth the investment and we will soon see a return. Now all of our windows are energy efficient, open easily, and have screens.
