Let There Be Light

The shutters on the window work fine to keep out gusts of wind but keeping them closed makes the cabin a dark place during the short winter days. Inspired by Russian John I decided to put glass in the window this weekend. My solution was made from a $2.00 furring strip from Lowe's and a few pieces of glass from some unused frames in the basement.
Two 8"x10"s and a 16"x20" did the trick.
It does not open and close but it can be removed easily and replaced with a screen when the weather warms back up.
