Have you tried  searching for instructions on how to build old-fashioned, wooden, single-pane glass, storm windows lately?  Me too and I came up with every window manufacturer in the world, but very little on actual "how to", simple, straight-forward instructions.

Thus, when I took on my storm window project, I decided to document the steps with pictures and put it on the web, without commercials or links to commercial sites, to be used by anyone who is looking for a way to do it yourself and save a bunch of money.

So, for what it's worth... here is my wooden storm window project.

Note:  I do not have a basement, so my workshop is in my garage. So, every time that I wanted to work on my windows project, I had to move out the car & truck and move the riding mower to give me room to work.


The story is quite simple.  It started with a 3-seasons room with 14 windows.  We decided that we wanted to make the room into a 4-seasons room and in order to do this, we would have to either replace all 14 windows or... put storm windows on the outside.

We chose the latter... thus... I set out to find out how to make my own storm windows.

I managed to find just enough information on the web to get me started.

I found that I would need some 1x3" wood, a router, some wood glue, a miter box and some nails & screws.

Armed with that information, I set out on me project with the goal of making the best storm window at the least possible cost.
