The View from My Kitchen Window

I had to do this challenge standing in my kitchen. The window is high and I can only get this view by standing in a certain spot. For the sake of composition, I left out all the pill bottles that sit in the window sill. This is a view of the back of the two other houses on my block. My window faces north. The houses in our neighborhood are old and interesting, and I tried to do this drawing at least four times including once on a white board with a dry-erase marker before I got anything that came together. Sheesh!
