Thanks, Ted, Bob and Rich !!

Dave, I used the ol' steelwool and vinegar solution first, then a wash of medium dark I/A. Then wiped it down with a damp cloth and some fine grit sandpaper, to bring back some of the highlights. That was just the top portion. On the tiles I went over them with some medium grit sandpaper then the same I/A and wiped it off immediately.

Good to have you following along, Greg.

Fred,
Very nice. I like the color but couldn't figure out what you did. Thanks for the info.

Windows, windows everywhere.



That doesn't include the 6 bay windows I haven't started yet. I believe I'm going to install what I have first. Don't ask why, I don't know.

Thanks Jerry and Bob !!

No, Carl, no jig.Just me. The openings would have to be much more precise for a jig to work.

Thanks, Kevin.!!

Fred. Looks great. The weathering on the walls is just right and certainly brings out the detail.

Freehand windows look nice too.

Windows are installed and glazed, except for the bay windows, which I'm getting ready to start on.

The bay windows are done.





I guess my next move is to figure out window coverings.
