The upper balustrades came back from M&A Restoration's carpentry shop on Friday afternoon for a fitting. After extensive rebuilding in the shop, the top and bottom rails are new, as are the corner posts--they were too rotten to save. All the old balusters were restored and retained, however. With a little more work the upper balustrades will be finished and installed this week.
As noted in an earlier post, the windows came home last week and Friday afternoon they were fitted back into the frames.
