Mine are all on my blog, I didn't want to take up a whole page. I also posted pics in the pics forum on a few threads.

Finally got my wooden self storing wood storms built and installed. At least on the double hung windows. Lots of paint removal and repair plus sill extensions. Have a few wood casements I'm planning on doing as well but that will wait for spring.
In the midst of paint removal around the windows. Many coats built up especially in the corners. Heat gun worked well but took some patience :roll:

All paint removed to bare wood. Colored areas are bondo.

Although this window uses hangers, I've opted not to use them on the final solution as the stroms will be permanently attached from the inside. Since they are self storing, the bottom glass can be lifted to provide a screen exposure if desired, similiar to an aluminum triple track storm.
