Reader Renovations – Replacing Brick Wall with Windows

by Prince Of Petworth June 3, 2013 at 4:00 pm 39 Comments


I love seeing people’s renovations and projects. If you’re doing/have done anything interesting and have before and after photos please send a brief description in an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com

Thanks to HG for sending these shots. He writes:

“I managed the project including hiring an engineer, getting drawing, getting permit, hiring three different contractors, negotiation the best deals from each (window installing company, Marvin, for material and labor; brick demo and structural support installation company; then finally drywall and other finishing company). The project spans enlarging window openings on three floors, not just the top floors (the pic) so I haven’t really calculated the final cost yet, but definitely more than half-off of prices I was given by general contractors when I was shopping around.

Before – As you can see there were two small windows and a door that takes you to a deck.”


“During – They used drill to loosen the brick, but picked one brick at a time… a very length process.”


“After – we love the outcome. The sliding window/doors are great.”
