The Cross House
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.
