Ha! That sample window supposedly arrived in my hometown on August 2, at which time it appears it became utterly lost to UPS. I've submitted a lost package claim through UPS and the seller did the same through Alibaba. So now, I probably have to request a refund for the sample, order another sample, and wait another three weeks at least. If the window is as good as I think it should be, it will be worth it. But there's no way I'll take the risk on an order of eight of them without confirming the fit and finish of a sample first. Just bad luck, I guess. Hopefully, the next one will get here successfully.

Wow! That is one amazing build! Love your videos!

Wes-I gotta hand it to you man. I had a rough week, but I felt better after watching you sweat it out in the Georgia summer heat.

I am going on a houseboat on Friday for a 9 day trip.

Everytime I see your project; I am a wee jealous cuz your wife helps you some.

I wish you would at least scaffold the side; seeing you teetering on the ladder makes me nervous, but I have already got replacement parts.

May cool breezes find you.

Nice progress!

I cringed watching you cut those narrow pieces on the table saw, though. A push stick would reduce the risk to your fingers.
