When we first decided to purchase the ranch house and subsequently remodel bits and pieces, I knew immediately that I wanted red framed windows because I’d seen them before on another native stone house.
But for the life of me, I couldn’t remember where I’d seen red framed windows on a sandstone house. I searched all over the internet, in catalogs and around town and didn’t see a single sandstone house with red framed windows.
In fact, I only saw one home with red framed windows in all my search around town and it didn’t have a sandstone exterior.
Being the stubborn woman that I am, I insisted on checking the price and letting that be the deciding factor. Turns out red framed windows are at least twice as much as standard color frames. Apparently red framed windows aren’t in real high demand.
I’d all but given up on my red framed windows. I was beginning to think I’d dreamt the whole thing up.
It sure made the windows pop… but I couldn’t decide if that was a good thing or a bad thing.
And there they were.
My red framed windows nestled into the native sandstone rock.
I don’t know if it is because the windows are nicer, the home is grander or the color is a bit different…
But I think I would like them.
