Luckily, the door hardware looks like it has paint on it, that is easily removable without damaging the original brass finish.
With the baseboard woodwork and the toilet tank removed, I can now finish prepping the bottom part of the walls. Not a lot left to remove, and it comes of fairly easily…
Door frame woodwork, after being stripped with the heat gun… Door frame woodwork, after sanding the remaining paint off…
Painted woodwork… Baseboard woodwork all removed. Door frame woodwork all removed.
We bought ten new cinder blocks to add to the basement wall… Cleaned off and ready to start installing the new cinder blocks. New cinder blocks installed.
Using a hammer and chisel, I notched out all of the square holes to match the original frame pieces. Test fitting the main frame pieces. Seems like a nice fit. Notching out the square holes in the bottom piece…
I’ll try to duplicate the side pieces with parts from some old windows we salvaged. The original top piece, with the new sides and bottom pieces…
This window was removed from the front attic dormer back in 2003. I’ve removed all of the old paint, and will now attempt to reconstruct it. I’ll try to duplicate the bottom piece with a part from another old window we salvaged. Side by side of the old piece and new work in progress.
