I don’t have many pictures to show the state they were in but we took the sashes out, we stripped them, repaired them, scarfed in new pieces of wood where the bottoms had rotted away and then primed with linseed oil before repointing.
The view from our empty window…
It took us a couple of hours to get these stripped back, but we are a good team. Then there was some mortar work to be done above the window, a job that Owen tackled.
And, here’s the finished windows, they look elegant and one day (or should that be one year) the room will accompany them perfectly!
