Alterations and Replacement-In-Kind of Historic Kitchen Roof

 

Heritage Restoration continues to restore the sash at Avon Old Farms School.  The windows are being restored using a conservation methodology, where the finishes are chemically stripped and the wood scrubbed, not sanded, so the color can stay consistent.  The goal is for a clear stain finish to match final color determination.  There is a stain sample photo at the end of this gallery that matches the original stain.  Some points of the restoration:

  • The windows were marked as C-1 and C-2.  C-1 is the window on the interior left, and C-2 interior right.
  • All parts marked for location
  • Interior storm dimensions taken using new oak stops for previous interior storm system
  • C-1 has a new oak plywood interior extension jamb
  • C-2 has a drywall extension jamb
  • The exterior was original, including casings, jambs, sills, screens, and sash.
  • The wood was stripped using Citri-strip, pull scrapped, and scrubbed with various coarse grades of Scotch-Brite hand pads
  • Wood Dutchmans done with antique heart pine
  • Split moldings repaired and Titebond glued or West System epoxied
