Beautiful work! Love your saves and the transitions from ugly aluminum to beautiful wood.

Lovely work!

I'm especially intrigued by the curve topped double hung window, as that's what we have (although ours lack the pulley mechanism so are basically single hung).

Can you tell me more about the hinges you use for the storms? They look like some sort of specialty hinge?

The storm hangers are just that. Storm hangers. I carry about 6 different types depending on the storm weight/architrave style and client budget. The stainless steel ones carry the most load with minimal deflection.
