A Window Replacement

Our legendary maintenance man Julian put the finishing touches on a replacement window on the Parker Cottage building. It was Dave Harrés desire that this window be changed out to something more authentic for the period. Like so many of the restored structures he has been involved in, Dave searched the second hand dealers until he found just the right one. For him it was all about the proprtions. For many of us, it was not until we saw this window installed that we truely understood what he meant. Of course he was right!

Quite apart for the aesthetics there was a need to replace the rotten wood and deal with the water egress.
