I couldnt agree more with Jade...I am jealous that you still have the original windows. My house had suffered from
the plague of the 1990s renovation craze and lost all but one of the original windows. I am having a hard time convincing my hubby that wood is the way to go since we dont have them now. Restoration is the best way to go, there is just no substitute for the " Real McCoy". Good luck with your restoration and post those pictures, we can never look at to many.
