If the eyes are the windows of the soul

Are windows the soul of a house?

These photos were actually taken the other evening, so there may be EVEN MORE developments that we haven’t seen, but I did want to share the fact that the windows and doors are being installed in our laneway.

All our windows are from Cascadia Windows, made locally with fibreglass frames.

More updates will come as we progress!
