2006, Vinyl Double-Hung Windows and a Window Unit Air Conditioner!
We have beautiful, wonderful double-hung vinyl windows, yay us. They're very pretty, very functional, operate very smoothly, etc., etc. HOWEVER, they do NOT play nicely with window-unit air conditioners (you can't screw the air conditioner into the vinyl window parts). So after getting a brilliant idea from a newsgroup post, and not willing to pay $40 for a metal air conditioner brace that I can't really use anyway (again, vinyl window sill), I set out to make my own air conditioner brace out of a 2x4, some white paint, and a little sweat. Turned out purty nice too, I must say.
