I had a big installation on Monday and needed to transport the window to a client's home about 25 minutes away. I had intended to share today a picture of it installed in her lovely home but the image I took with my phone didn't do it justice (shocker!) so I am coordinating with a professional photographer to take the quality photo it deserves. Look for that next Friday. So I thought I'd share another really important aspect of what I do-- the final details. Before many of my big installations, I start to panic about, well, just about everything. Even though I have measured multiple times and planned for windows that aren't square or sills that aren't flat, there are so many things that I think of as installation day nears that I often develop an eye twitch! This is the guy who talks me off the ledge. Often he just reassures me that everything will work out but often he helps me install the windows so he will talk through all of the details with me until my eye stops twitching. This time, he decided to build me a crate to transport this window which is six feet wide at the bottom. This particular window was installed by the client's builder who, like my husband, was also very patient with my insisting, "Can you move it just a bit to the left? No, that's too much, about 1/4 inch to the right now." Without attention to those final details, my job isn't done and the beautiful window doesn't get it's moment to shine. In this case, thanks to my husband and her builder, the client texted me, "the window is perfect!"
