Sounds the trumpets the glazier finally arrived!!!

Well after 9 weeks of bated breath they have finally arrived! Well make it 4 years of bated breath. Since we began our cave dwelling experience we have dreamed of these doors going in. Today two were partially installed. The other one will be installed tomorrow and the gable (weather permitting) window frame installed and templates made to order the glass. Hopefully it doesn't take too long, I am want to finish the verandah. The trick will be to not break the glass with all the rest of the building to do, but it is 4mm toughened glass. Pretty amazing how tough that stuff is. All the doors and windows are double glazed and argon gas filled. So pretty good in letting in the radiant heat and stopping the convection heat out/in. I am like a kid at christmas.... do you think it would be appropriate for me to hug a grown man for installing my windows/doors?

All it is missing now is a fireplace!
