Overlooking the garden the windows finally open!

The sitting room has three different styles of windows, 8 casements at the front and front sides, three sash or double hung overlooking the garden and two piano windows that flank the fireplace and do not open at all. My handy man has been itching to see if the sash can be taken out, so today we tried. We started by removing all the trim piece by piece and it has all been put together just like a puzzle, everything originally was custom made and done by hand. While it needs restoring as it is worn and dirty, the quality is fantastic so it has been a good decision to keep it.
