Saturday. Spent most of the day working on the front picture window. After removing the storms this spring, we discovered that the main window frame had lost a lot of paint, and the wood strips that held the pane in place were not in good shape. As I couldnt’ find an exact match for the wood strips, I improvised something out of quarter-round wood and got it painted and in place yesterday. There were no glazier points holding the pane in, and it had bowed out in the middle. The inner surface had been caulked, but the caulk had turned to debris. I dug out all the old stuff, gently pushed the window back into place and nailed in the new wood strip, and then filled the inside gap with silicon caulk. Fingers crossed – hope it works!
