This house in West Seattle was added on to with a two story addition. The double hung windows were made with recycled douglas fir but were poorly made. They didn’t fit well, the bottom of the lowers did not have the same angle as the sill and the meeting rails in the center did not have the proper angles as to close tightly just a 1/2” gap when shut! Every window had to be fixed for one reason or another. 28 windows in all! But I got them in great working order then installed the sills & casing to replicate the original part of the house.. 14 doors to be installed with trim as well. Plinth blocks at the base & classic cap at the top The owners have many fine antiques to complement the look and heritage of the house. I cut the top two panels out of these double swing doors then installed the 80 year old stained glass windows after soldering the many fractured joints, what a fun job and the owners have become great friends as well. The husband is having a surprise birthday party this saturday and I will give him a Fibonicci gauge that I have posted on this site. Correction, at the party Suzan informed me that the house was built in 1910!
