As I recreated the lost diamond windows on the west dormer, I will recreate the lost details on the north gable windows. I believe that such small details collectively help to make great old houses gorgeous old houses.
All old houses, over time, lose bits and pieces of their original beauty.
And some old houses lose so many bits that their beauty is almost entirely lost. For example…
Luckily, the Cross House has not suffered such egregious losses. But each architectural loss to the Cross House is something I am dedicated to reversing, for isn’t reversing the depredations of time weirdly satisfying?
