Finished Windows

28 07 2010

The Serious windows have all been installed, and now it’s time to finish them on the interior: no more visible ice & water shields or house frame!  All the windows are fitted with Pressure Capillary tubes which are used to make sure that pressure between the panes of the window is equalized (they were manufactured at a higher altitude than where they have been installed).  This makes sure that the glass remains flat and doesn’t bow out.  The balloon at the end of each capillary tube should remain slightly inflated (not droopy) if pressure is equalized.

Instructions for the capillary tube.

Triple-pane Serious windows.

All done!

Work has also continued on the roof:

The plywood is nearly covered in the ice & water shield.

Left side of the roof: already has trim applied to the edge.

Right side: still needs trim and a little smoothing.
