Older building renovation and repair in ND.


Hello ppl.

New to this site but I'm hoping that posting here will help me learn more about what I can do or not do.

I'm in North Dakota and staying with my brother and family in an older building that they own.

There are three rooms that I will be working on and each is very large.

Each room has been left standing in lets say large piles of stuff I wouldn't place in my place.

I've seen a couple of snapshots in this forum and figured this would be the best place to share and learn from.

Here are some pics of the project at hand.

These are of the first room. Today I start work on the two large windows. They are 10'x5'11" in size. Each is single pane glass with a aluminum frame. Each has two sheets of glass in them. The FUN part, the brother wants to replace the wood and save the glass for re-use. The wood is rotted enough that if you took a running start at them and threw a feather they might fall by themselves! Serious!

Any thoughts on removing the glass safely. The framing is 2x6 all around.

if you want to save the glass, the best way would be to get a hold of some glass holder suction cups. It will make it alot easier and safer to move that glass. Also come in very handy if you ever try loading a giant soda vending machine into the back of a mini van.

The glass cups are an excellent idea

Are these sealed units?

Or only 1 single pane in an alum frame?

But you also state:

But you also state:
It sounds like one is sealed (or was sealed ) and the other is a storm window in an aluminum frame screwed in from the out-side.
