Tucson Window Replacement
This house is an adobe style stucco typical of the southwestern desert area. Original windows were single pane in aluminum frames, not very energy efficient for 120 degree heat. Replacements are U-30, low E, Argon filled in vinyl frames that lowered the overall temperature of the house by 10 degrees.

Cut out for octogon Cutting out the 3'x3' using replacement octogon as the template, removing stucco, studs and wire. Opening is then reframed for new window.
