The windows and doors arrived today. Overall they look great. Yaro sent two people to uncrate and help unload them, and then to install one window for instructional purposes. Dave and crew took advantage of the extra hands to get the big window into the house and installed in the rough opening.
For the technical details refer back to the post Windows and Doors.

with my windows to a port somewhere in Europe.

|October 8, the container arrives in my driveway|
|The windows are screwed directly to the bracing.|
It took about 30 minutes just to extricate the windows
before we could start unloading.
|The big window in the house and waiting to be|
installed. Those black round things are the suction
grips that make it a lot easier to manage these
quite heavy windows.
|Leveling and shimming the first window.|
|The trim is actually dark but is covered with a|
white protective tape.
|U-factor 0.13 = R-value of 7.7|
COG stands for center of glass so the glass itself has
an R-value of 11.3. The overall R-value of the window
is reduced because the R-value of the wood frame is
probably closer to 4 or 5.
