After tearing off the vinyl siding, we discovered clapboard that's in great condition. As a result, no siding required!
The newly relocated (and smaller) window has now found a home in our 2nd floor guest bathroom.
Our exit to our sundeck, along with big, bright windows, are now installed in the master bedroom.
Because we're renovating our house to fall in line with historical preservation guidelines (and thus receiving the tax credit that accompanies the certification), we're restoring the original pulley windows in the front of the house by stripping off the paint.
We didn't realize how big the back extension would be. The vaulted ceiling in the kitchen, which leads out to the back porch, seems as large as the original house (which is good as now we feel as though we're getting our money's worth). So we'll have a nice outdoor space to use all year long.

A snapshot of what will become the family room off the kitchen with a large window that overlooks the yard (and eventual Koi pond I hope).
