Hardy had some carpentry experience under her tool belt. Although she had never tackled window repair before, she is a staunch do-it-yourselfer and had dabbled in some other home repair projects. Even more to her advantage, her husband is a hobby furniture maker and had a workshop with most of the right equipment ready and waiting. And the project taught her to tackle windows of all descriptions. "The house had a variety of additions," she recalls, "and it was a mishmash of windows." By the time she was finished, she pretty much knew the ropes. Word spread.
