Amidst a good old fashioned New England blizzard, there was some progress to be had in the mud/utility room over at the new house. The first of the two new (old) windows were replaced. As I mentioned in a previous post, Mike found two matching sashes at our local architectural salvage store.
The first one (seen on the left) was installed yesterday and I love the comparison this image offers. The new sash is larger overall but also, much more period appropriate for the house.
Here's a close-up of what the existing window looks like. You can see the structural timber running under the window, which dictated that the new window could only go higher, not lower.
Here is an image that shows the newly installed salvage sash. The second will be installed next week.
And there are more salvage windows to be loved in our new house - a pair of picture windows.
More on these windows next week.
