It's here!  The 2014 Historic Homes Workshop is this weekend.  Programs are here, shirts have been delivered.  Chairs come tomorrow and by the time they get here the shop should be all cleaned and ready to go.  Why do we have the workshops?  So hopefully you will never do to your house what's shown above with that two story house.  Please no. Come learn why that's bad.  Doors open at 9am Saturday morning, and 12:30 Sunday afternoon.  Get your discounted advanced registration at shop.woodwindowmakeover.com

Storm Windows for a Hyde Park House

Here's a few pics of some storm windows we just made for a client.  Made 1/4" laminated glass, these are designed to take a blow.  Hopefully they never need to.  They should also make the original double hung windows on this old Hyde Park house more energy efficient.

Sash to Jacksonville

Here's three complete 1-lite sashes for the bottom half of a double hung window. They have been disassembled into their component parts for easy shipping. Made with traditional mortise and tenon joinery, the parts are labeled for easy assembly. They are complete with holes for the ropes. Cost to ship from Tampa to Jacksonville - $25.  Not bad.

White board from an historic window

This is a good idea.  Paint the back white and, viola!  Trendy whiteboard!

Looking up to Jason

Jason consistently impresses us all with his quick wit and creative solutions.   Maybe that's why the crew looked at him thus in this pic.

Working up high in a cigar factory building.

Its windy and rainy, but we're still having a good time.

Restoring radius top sash

Pictured here are the sash pulled from four windows and stripped of all their paint, glazing and glass.  They are now ready to be primed, reglazed and painted.
