No, Stilly, it won’t.

The Glory Hole is a slice of the basement that was walled off about 20 years ago to hide the furnace, provide a small box room, and make a recreation space in the rest of the basement. It’s as long as the short side of the house but only about six feet wide, and it contains the furnace, the water heater, five sections of loaded IKEA shelving, and the wine. Two of the windows are in the Glory Hole.

Tony will do some of the installation work outside, but most of it, especially removing the the old windows, will happen inside. Tony’s a big guy — about six-two and 200 pounds, none of it fat — and he needs room to manipulate his tools and the framing materials as well as the window units themselves. Plus something to stand on, because the windows are at head level.

So the IKEA shelving has to come out, which means moving its contents first.

F*** my life.

But the basement will be soooo much better when the job is done.
