The Cross House
In order to restore the windows at the Cross House it is necessary to remove them for long-ish periods. A good chunk of this time is waiting for the glazing to dry enough to paint. So, the house ends up with plexiglass covering the openings, which rather kills the beauty of the house.
So, behold, we are slowly getting some restored windows BACK in place, as evidenced by the second-floor tower window, right, and one of the smaller third-floor windows above.
The window sashes have been painted in their original color: classic black.
Few people paint windows black today, and this seems unfortunate. Window glass often looks black, and this blends perfectly with black sashes.
