During the summer and fall, a lot of windows were removed from the Cross House to undergo restoration.
The house, amazingly, retains all its original sashes. Of course, after 120-years some are not in great shape.
As the above image testifies to, with a great deal of faith (I just know these windows can be restored!), some perseverance, and elbow grease, miracles can happen.
When restoring a sash, the glass must be reglazed. And this take time to dry before painting can ensure. I mean months of time. So, a lot of sashes have been sitting inside the house waiting and waiting and waiting for the damn glazing to dry.
