Replacing windows 1 Reply

Hello!  We need to replace a bay window in our 30 year old log home.  We want to replace it with a picture window.  We received an estimate of $11,000.  That seems really high to me.  We live in NH.  Does anyone have any feedback as to whether or not that is a realistic cost to expect?  It is a large window, but...I find it hard to believe it costs that much to replace one window.  We plan on getting at least one more estimate, but I thought I would ask here as well.  Thanks!!  :)Continue

Trying to match a stain color 1 Reply

Can anyone who has worked a lot with Sikkens (or any other stain for that matter) tell me what would closely match the color on this log home?  Best way to describe it is a deep orange red.  Thanks.
