Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at a recent window restoration project done by local craftsman (and former Landmark Society staff member), Steve Jordan. The project in the presentation below involved the repair and restoration of second floor windows in a commercial building in Thousand Island Park in Wellesley Island.
Thanks to Steve for sharing his work!
