Any inputs appreciated, if so (or other recommendations)
Project is new construction but to match at least in appearance previous
ca 1900 double hungs w/ leaded glass uppers but with the facility for
interior cleaning and low-e glass, etc., ...
It will, in all likelihood not be possible to actually use real leaded
glass; that will have to be simulated w/ the lead tape trick I'm almost
certain although I've not gotten the callback from the Marvin regional rep.
Since these have wide flat casing on both exterior and interior, I
figure it's probably as easy to build the frames on site and use the
replacement sashes and do the rest here.
Wondered if any of you done something similar or have other suggestions...
Talked to a guy who does original reproductions; he can duplicate the
windows back to the weights and rope but nothing other than conventional
storm for any energy gains and that's at $11-1400/window w/o the leaded
glass and no casings...if were going the conventional route, I'd just
build the sashes and all and partial out the leading; I don't want to
get bogged down in that but it's no problem to build a single pane sash.
I'm not looking for reproductions here, but would like a fair simulation
to fit in w/ appearance of existing.
