   Hello.  I'm in the process of switching out the glass in my sidelights and it dawned on me that the sidelights are glazed on the inside but my windows are glazed on the outside.  Is it normal to…Continue

    Morning.  This is not my usual hang out, 1909 homeowner, but it concerns a 1950s rambler.  This was the cover of Saturday's Real Estate section of The Washington Post.  All I can say is Good…Continue

   Morning.  This concerns a house built in the 50s but this is my regular hang out. and I just had to share.  This was the cover of Saturday's Real Estate section of The Washington Post.  All I can…Continue

   The brick addition was added to the original stone building sometime around 1840.  I believe the windows are 6 over 6 with nice deep window sills..  Is it Federal, Georgian or American Greek…Continue

"    I'm hoping to use something similar to that on my 19th century French door that I've been s-l-o-w-l-y working on.  And they'll be on the "inside".    Amanda(WV) "

"The angled shape sheds water better, keeps water out of the delicate joinery. That being said, some millwork in the teens and twenties used wooden strips called Glass Bead to hold the panes in, and that was on the exterior, and it does take a…"

The Gockleys replied to Amanda Stroud's discussion Window glazing, inside or outside?
"The glazing is designed to take the beating of the weather and to fail slowly after 15-20+ years. It is easily replaced because it is a soft putty, whereas if the wood had beed exposed to the weather and rotted, it would be a pain to replace. Plus,…"

"  Out of curiousity why is the glazing on the outside?  It seems to me it would be a lot easier to reglaze/repair a window if you could do it from inside the house as opposed to standing outside on a tall ladder.   Amanda(WV)"

Window glazing, inside or outside?

   Hello.  I'm in the process of switching out the glass in my sidelights and it dawned on me that the sidelights are glazed on the inside but my windows are glazed on the outside.  Is it normal to have the glazed side of a window on the outside?  Just wondering as my fence contractor wanted to know if I wanted the "pretty side" facing me or facing the street.  Thought it was an odd question (facing the street of course) but then again the "pretty side" of my window is on the…See More

Sean Maher replied to Amanda Stroud's discussion What "style" is my friend's house?
"I'd also say Federal/Greek.  Looks earlier than 1840, but the architectural conservative thing is real, especially outside of cities.  We have houses with full 18th century wall paneling being built right up to 1800 around here, with…"
