Revitilization in Action

Tax breaks in the stimulus bill are taking effect:
Three top window manufacturers, including Andersen Windows of Bayport, Minn., have seen an uptick in business in recent weeks that they credit, at least in part, to a tax break for installing more energy-efficient windows that's part of the federal stimulus package.

For Andersen, that meant recalling 180 of the 560 workers it laid off in January.
When I did all my windows 6 years ago, there was no break. And the basement windows I did last fall probably fall outside the chronological window. But you can bet there are those on the bubble, people who can't afford to sell due to the depreciation of the housing market, who will be all over this form of relief/incentive, to improve their home. In the process, it is putting people back to work, creating even more stimulus.

Don't you love it when a plan comes together.
