More Storm Window Progress

We have storm windows!

I know, not too exciting really. But it is exciting for us. This is just the south side of the house -- the main floor is almost finished now, except one window on the porch. (That remaining window could have been installed already if I didn't have to replace the bottom pane.)

I am especially impressed with the far window in the picture (the one on the right). That was the only storm window on the main level that was missing, so my father made the frame for me. It's a darn good match if you ask me, and it fits better than the originals.

Here is the new storm window when it was half finished.

And here it is beside one of the originals (which was obviously also in progress).

Mmm. Wooden storm windows.

I've been toying with an idea, which is either brilliant or stupid, I'm not sure which: double pane glass wooden storms.

All the wood storms from my house are missing, so I'd have to fabricate them regardless. The lines would be almost the same as with single pane glass, right? You'd get even better insualtion, and virtually the same look.

I hope I haven't just become completely evil, in your eyes.
