2004 also brought new attic windows. They aren’t a match for what was there before. What WAS there were simple sashes hinged to the frames. They were obviously original but horrible. I wanted to put in casements but couldn’t afford it considering that there were five windows to replace, so I opted for vinyl, single-hung windows (shudder). Even I will compromise my principles when it comes to money…

The fish scale shingles that needed replacing were crafted from relatively inexpensive, clear, cedar shingles shaped with a jigsaw. No need to buy the expensive bundles from Menards, etc.
