« Part 15: Installing a new window. Part 16 of WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". series Part 17: I'M PROUD TO ANNOUNCE MY 80th BIRTHDAY TODAY! »

We finally got some decent weather, so I rushed out, put some shingles around the window.

I couldn’t salvage enough old shingles for the job, but it didn’t turn out too bad.

The new ones will gradually blend in while aging.

Photos by Barb!

Good job on the window Dick and the photos Barb and also the info on texting photos, which I really appreciate. Actually I had thought to ask you how you did it and then forgot. Good thing Gman is on the ball.
