The New/Old Replacement Windows



BEFORE 

When we purchased our house, there was a metal slider window in the upstairs hallway. 


AFTER 

A picture window with lights that match the other windows is now in its place. 


BEFORE

A two-over-two double-hung was in the downstairs bath. 


AFTER 

Now it's back to a 12-over-8 double-hung similar to what is seen in other areas of the house. The chair rail will run below the window to complete the trim.


BEFORE 

Another two-over-two double-hung was in one of the upstairs bedrooms. 


Here is Darryn installing the replacement sash and the trim.

BEFORE 

Yet another two-over-two double-hung, found in the master bathroom. 


Here is Nate installing the replacement sash and trim. Notice the matching window on the other side of the room. This was our mystery window, which was hidden behind a shower stall when we purchased the house. 


AFTER 

Now the new/old window matches the original on the other side of the room. This window actually wasn't quite ready to be installed for good. You can see that it is missing one pane of glass on the bottom. But it was exciting to get a peek of what's to come. 

The chair rail will run below the window to complete the trim here too. 

The bathtub will go in front of this window.

  6. Windows look great! Question, is that a cubby under the window, with original blacksmith bowtie hinges? And is that new molding going up in the rooms, around windows? Run the old fashion way? It's looking really good, closer and closer to move in. Happy Spring!

    1. I don't know if those are original hinges. And yes, the entire upstairs has all new crown molding. And any new trim around windows that was matches the original that is there.

  12. I love your windows but I am wondering about heat retention with that type of window. Will you have storm windows?

    1. No, we're still without leaves. The leaves you see are from evergreen trees and shrubs. But soon!

  15. Catherine, what goes on in that little room in the upstairs hallway? The little hinged door below the [incredibly beautiful] new window, what is/was behind that little door? The interior wall appears angled in the second pic below, why is that? What was the original function for this hallway room and why would it have that curious little storage space.

    1. Hi Flo, The window is located in a back hallway. The door goes to the attic of the el. I would like to somehow use the attic space for storage (Christmas boxes, etc.) but as of right now, it is unfinished. Yet another project!
      Best, Catherine

  16. Gosh the light just floods into the rooms where you've installed new windows! I know it still must feel like a hard slog some days, but you & Mike are setting the foundation for a brilliant family home.
    Love M xx
