This was our next job after the Green Hills work and was done over in East Nashville. Looked to be close to the turn of the century with lots of work done over the years that reflected the change in occupant as well as way of living. We set out to do our standard work on the sashes but quickly realized that the frames supporting the sashes and even the framing below the windows had to be worked on before the sashes could be approached. That became the focus of the job at this point and it went as follows:
Windows before we started:
Storm windows and sashes pulled, removal of rotted lumber and jambs stripped back to wood:
Replacement of rotted sills and subsills with cypress. Jambs rebuilt. Exterior trim stripped, patched, and primed.
Exterior trim, jamb, sill, and subsill painted.
The final step was to put new storm windows in place.
7 jambs rebuilt or repaired with sashes waiting to be worked on another day.
