It's so tempting to reinstall the originl style storm windows. I still have marks above my window frames where hte old hangers were and the small eyebolt is still on the outside sill of every window. But at $350... I can get 2 LArson Gold storm windows. Really, they don't look so bad.
We'll see how my budget is next year. I have a few identical sizes. I could change my mind and at least get 8 authentic storms for the front and play musical storms with the ones I've already installed. I have 12 installed, 6 on order and 20 more after that. So its' still possible I could get some Allied or wood storms put on at least in front. On the other 32 windows, I don't car as much and would rather put my money to use elsewhere such as refinishing the wood floors.
Some times I'll take a picture of the windows with no storms and the ones with the Larsons and see what people think.
