Last Kitchen Window Installation

Day #161

September 19, 2020 – Today, I am installing the last new kitchen window. This is one of the eight windows that I brought down yesterday. The framing for this window opening was complete awhile back. It is ready for the new window. The installation should be pretty straight forward.

Before I set the window in place, I remove the temporary plywood covering the opening.

Once the temporary plywood is removed I can install the Tyvek building wrap.

After the building wrap, I set the window in the opening. Once I have it level, I fasten it in place by nailing through the nailing flange. I complete the installation with Pella Smart Flash window and door flashing tape.

The kitchen windows are complete. Now I will move on to the last living room window.
