The Eyes Have It

The Hollow finally has complete period reproduction windows that were installed by the Restoration Crew the week of November 2nd, 2009. Making the sashes took about four weeks and $1400 worth of select grade heart pine. The time frame is a bit inaccurate due to absences and vacations of the crew. Tasks yet to be accomplished include installation of the backband trim on the three downstairs windows, making and installing a winder tread on the stairs, acquiring and installing heart poplar siding on the plywood covered back side of the house, and installing the bed molding under the eaves.
