Windsor Terrace (Brooklyn) Attic Window

Here's the window installed, with final renovations nearly complete (I believe the shingles and the windowframe were yet to be painted)

Guys, I'm going to try to be better about documenting some of the more interesting projects that come out of the studio and writing about them here.  First up: This is a project I did a little over a year ago that was super interesting - I was able to work with a fantastic couple who were renovating their historic home near Prospect Park in Brooklyn.  The house originally had an oval gable window in the attic, which previous owners had removed to install an AC unit.  Google Streetview captured the house during early renos, & you can see it at the top of the house:

Since they were weren't using any existing window frame, they ended up having one custom built at Heights Woodworking in Brooklyn, and then they gave me the frame so I could double-check that the dimensions were perfect (this normally wouldn't have been necessary, but there are so many variations in an oval shape it was the easiest solution).  I built the window in the pattern & colors we'd agreed on, and the frame and window were installed by the professionals.

Why didn't I take my gloves off?

The colors were chosen because they would look distinctly different during the day from when the window was lit from behind at night.

You can see that the frame has one built-in ledge for the glass to rest against, and also these two removable pieces that were glued in once the glass was in place.  This allowed them to install the frame first, and insert the glass once all the rough stuff was done.

Basically like this.
