Total House Window Refurbish

So in my infinite wisdom I thought it would be a good idea to start a major remodeling project during the Christmas holidays. What the heck was I thinking?

I've got one to two guys here at 9am every morning Monday through Friday till 5pm. They are pulling my vintage 1942 wood windows out of their frames, removing the glass, sanding down the frames and repainting, putting the glass back in, re-glazing and then replacing in the wall. There are 13 windows and they have not been worked on since they were put in the walls, or at least since I bought the place in 1984.

As they pull the windows out to work on them, they put plywood up so half my house looks like a cave.

We've been working hard putting down pavers in the backyard to make a patio. Now the view of the back of the house will be nicer with no peeling paint. And I don't have to worry about the window actually falling out due to neglect.
