Before. After.

The west and east sashes from the Long Bedroom. Guess which has been restored?

 

The BEFORE sashes look like crap. Really, they look like something which one would toss into a dumpster without hesitation.

But under the old, flaking paint, and under the old, brittle glazing, is wonderful old glass and old-growth wood in excellent condition. The sashes, restored, could well last another century. New sashes? These have a life-span of like 15-years.

    I’m guessing the one on the left has been restored.

    Do you know how often I look at a house on OHD and my first thought is, now THIS house needs Ross!
    This is just another example of your commitment to detail in your restoration and it is so impressive. I hope I get the change to restore a (much smaller) Victorian house someday.

      Do you know how often I look at a house on OHD and my first thought is: Oh! I sooooooo want to save this!

      Sigh.
