In 2014, the idea of restoring the 2,576 windows in the house (OK, maybe not that many) seemed an impossible task. Yet, somehow, there are now only five clear-glass windows which need restoring. Only five! And these will be done by the end of the year. Zounds!
What has enabled this astonishing progress is my patented Baby Step™ method: slow, incremental work. Every week, no matter what, some work has to take place regarding a window sash. Each sash is taken to the basement workroom, and each week a bit of work is accomplished on said sash. It doesn’t matter if one day just five minutes is spent on a sash. Or 15 minutes. Or two hours. Nope. All that matters is some effort is expended every week. And thus, somehow, like magic, 2,576 windows have been whittled down to five windows.
‘Tis be a miracle.
The restoration of the library and sewing room clear-glass windows are part of the 2017 Heritage Trust Fund grant. As were the sewing room stained-glass windows. The stained-glass for the library was part of the 2015 Heritage Trust Fund grant.
