Out of the Blue

In a triumphant moment we got a window to open in our bathroom that was painted shut a few years ago, which was making it difficult to get it properly dried out after showering. The bad news is that it now seems to be stuck open, and since it turns out there is no screen behind it, this has served as an open invitation to all sorts of insects to come visiting, so the bathroom is quarantined until we can get the window closed or we can import enough spiders to restore nature's balance in there.

Blue, just go all ghetto on it (i'm an expert in this heh).

1) Close the window fully

2) Pull yo strap (a 9mm) and blow all the glass out of the window

3) Get some 'Glad Press N' Seal' and cover all the way up to the very edge of the now permanently open window.

Viola, now when you need to vent the bathroom just pull back the Press N' Seal AND....the BONUS.....Oh YES SIR YOU CAN REAPPLY THE PRESS N' SEAL INDEFINITELY.... Are you starting to see the REAL GENIUS OF THIS YET? *Nodding head knowingly*

Can't you pound it back down with a rubber mallet? Or even put a piece of scrap wood on top of the sill and hit it with a hammer.

Yeah, when all else fails, hit the shit out of it!

Haha, indeed. Got the window moving again. Now we need to get one of those little adjustable screens. There's actually a space for a storm screen there, but I don't seem to have it. I wonder if it's a standard size that can be replaced?

And for the record, the quarantine was simply keeping the door closed so the bugs wouldn't populate the rest of the house before I got this under control.

Well why not grab a roll of screen from the local hardware store and either tape or staple up a temporary screen for now. Hell you could even use plastic wrap. Then get to planing down that wood.

You wanted your window open. Now it is open. Don't get all fancy-pantsy and want the window closed now. You big wigs and your ridiculous desires.
