In addition to The Owner-Builder Book, I've read Better Houses, Better Living and am in the process of reading Make Your House Do the Housework and have watched several of the DVDs that I've ordered from this site, all of which have been jam-packed with excellent information that I cannot imagine building a house without.

Well it took a little bit longer than I'd planned to get to the other windows--just too many chores to do last weekend--but I was finally able to finish up the curtains today.

Given all of the measuring and testing and re-measuring and re-testing a couple of weeks ago I had been able to refine what needed to be measured and marked much more quickly.  This time is really only took two days, and one of those was cleaning up much of the mess that had been building up from a very long construction.  

I got the laser line in place pretty quickly first thing in the morning, then took a break for lunch before starting the drilling and the curtain layout.  It all went pretty quickly and I think in retrospect I've definitely got this all down pretty clean now--when the time comes to work on other stretches of windows (like the long upstairs hallway) I'll know what to do I think.

So there's not really too much to tell other than the dry basics of climbing and drilling and setting and measuring everything.  According to my internal cameras I set off the motion detectors up there 105 times during the course of the day--but I guess it's a goodly workout!

The Great Room Curtains are finally done.  I think what's up next is to spend some time cleaning up the tools and cleaning up the garage.....it badly needs it, and I need to get all of the tools I've traipsed in over the last few months anyway. The place is a frick'in mess.....

The windows...they have no idea what's going to happen to them.....
One curtain rod up and straight....
...and they're done! Very nice; the curtains aren't quite centered yet though.
Boom chaka-laka!
