Windsor Terrace (Brooklyn) Attic Window
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.
