The Cross House
I just cannot believe it. There are, I am pretty sure, 5,984 windows at the Cross House. And only TWO more need restoring!!!!!!!!
When I purchased the house in 2014, it seemed an impossible task. Soooooooooo many windows needing soooooooooo much work. I would get queasy in taking it all in. But, via my patented Baby Step™ method, somehow, someway, 99.9% of the sashes have now been restored.
It seems a miracle.
And most of the sashes are original. They have lasted 125-years and could last another 125-years. Modern replacement windows? They have a 15-year lifespan.
(All the above newly done sashes are part of the 2017 Heritage Trust Fund Grant.)
