Woodworking done on one window - still have to clean off the existing glass from the old glazing - install the glass and add glazing putty - although the time in the shop split up over a few days this one window took 8 hours just for the woodwork.  I had a lot of guessing to do since the existing wood rails were so rotted at the ends there was nothing to copy - had to use a little exterior wood filler here and there but overall it is OK - this window is at the highest point in the building so no close ups from the street - better for me - front + back photos

The first window has its glass installed and painted - 2nd window finished the wood repairs -  the customer told me she priced out a replacement window but the modern copy of this window didn't look nice against their old colonial building - plus the contractor needed a hefty pay check in addition to making the windows because he wanted to make a template from the outside and this is the third floor.  I removed the windows from the inside - easy easy for an old guy

Glazier points for the glass followed by white silicone.  I thought about oil putty but it never dries and doesn't seal for a long time and I want these panes to be water proof - the water is what rotted them out -
Nothing left but the install - going to try for this weekend

Yes I will install them and take a photo of the house from the ground - hope they fit without too much tweaking on site :)

Beside worry regarding the fit before screwing the hinges onto the jam  - all was good - the window is the highest one in the house

Niiiice! I didn't expect the windows to be hinged. Nice view of the garden. What is the body of water we are looking at?

The area is called Old Greenwich - looking out at the long Island Sound - across is Long Island.  The customer says she has the window open during the summer to allow heat to escape from the third floor.
What I thought was backwards was the decorative side of the window with the best side of the mullions showing was hung to face inside.  The other side where you drop in the glass faced out and was just squared off with no shaped molded mullions.  Customer said you couldn't see that detail from the ground if it was reversed.  Customer is always right !
