Push come to shove, we always support a project’s function over elegance. If you can do it quickly and on the cheap, too, you’ve got a trifecta on your hands. Reader Sakraft1 manages to pull that off with his window cover.
Basically Sakraft1 wanted to keep snow and leaves from piling up in the window ledge of his basement window. A trip to the local home center yielded a piece that doesn’t restrict the light but will keep most debris out of the window. For safety the whole thing swivels up in case you need to get out of there in a hurry. Not too bad for a weekend’s work.
