"My Job on Egress Window Well Cover….."

My job that had to be done after the window well cover was installed was to cut and attach easily removable sides.  I did that Tuesday and am pleased with the results.

I bought a camouflage print tarp, cutting 2 pieces to size, then added Velcro strips to both tarp and frame.  After making sure it fit correctly, I stapled the Velcro to the frame and brought the tarp piece in, sitting down at my sewing machine and securely attaching the Velcro strips to them.  Yes, I am pretty pleased with myself.  LOL

They are up just in time, too.  When I was out there working on them, I saw we'd already had a few leaves blown into the window well.  I'm sure that after the wind and rain yesterday, many more would have found their way into it.  ;)  Next test……seeing how well it keeps snow from inside the window well.
