Authentic Farmhouse Renovation – How I Chose New Windows

“Windows are the eyes of the house” as the saying goes. So when we were ready to replace the vinyl windows in our 1900 farmhouse, I wanted to get it just right. These new windows will probably last our lifetime, cost a fair bit of money and are just too important to mess up. No pressure!
