Compromise or not?

The “Big House” has mostly the original windows. They are super gross but so cool at the same time. They are wood. They will all need to be removed and repaired, glass replaced where needed and keeping them has been a compromise. I wanted them and Steve caved. They were a non-negotiable. They belong in the house. Here they are in the future study/music room.

Windows in the apartment were complete mish-mash. I think the previous owners must have found and installed whatever was available.

Obvious by the pictures.

We have ordered new and improved 2015 windows that will match the original 1903’s. They will have wooden screens built for them just like the originals. They will make the apartment not look like a separate – add on but an extension of the beauty the original house possesses.

I might have stomped my foot a little and pouted but the windows will stay!!
