Finally finished with this years set of windows. Was hoping they'd be done by October, then before thanksgiving. This one took extra time because the meeting rail and one stile joint was rotted beyond repair. I had to have a new stile and rail made for the upper sash. Also was missing a piece of weather strip that I had to order.
Just need to install sash locks and it will be done.

Had to move the operation inside as fall is definately here. Last Monday I started putting the glass and putty back in. Puttying is going much better this time and I have 5 of 10 sashes complete. Takes me about 2 hours to set the glass, set the glazing points, clean the inside putty mess, and tool the outside putty. Not breaking any records but much faster and smoother than my first go-around.
A neighbor down the street replaced all their windows with "maintenance free" vinyl, we'll see whose windows are still around 50 years from now.

Finally got working on the windows again. Sloane's windows were pulled last spring, now working on pulling the dining rooms sashes and prepping the sills and jambs.
