First "real" double glazed window

Installed a double glazed unit into one of the lounge south windows today.

It's a 4mm, 4mm glazed unit with 16mm spacer, built by UltraGlass for $110 (512mmx1250mm in size).
  • I removed the existing window frame
  • removed the three panes and two muntins
  • routed the inside space to allow the much thicker double glazed unit (24mm) to fit
  • painted window frame
  • used wood beading to fit window in place
  • reattached window.
This window is one of three. The second window has acetate on it and the third is unchanged. In the mornings there is condensation on the standard window and none no either of the other two.
