Hi Reg

As I said in an e-mail to you -Very impressive work on the mill - I know I would have given up before now and mounted the wall on board and used commercial Grandt style window castings so admiration for what you have done.

Look forward to seeing the completed model (I guess you will as well!!) and to seeing how it fits into the Henderson Branch

Happy New Year

I have to admit that I am not creative enough to have thought of your solution.

Too far into it now.   :)

The clerestory windows are somewhat easier, as they are deadlights, not double hung. Five pieces per assembly rather than seven.  The fitting is easier, too.

Si:  It is actually kind of relaxing, except that modeling time is a bit dear at the moment.  I have child watch this evening.  But I think I will bring the project board upstairs and set it up on the card table.  My grandson (who is the child watch subject) can play video games while I build windows.   With only the clerestory windows to deal with, there isn't much I need to schlep from the basement. 

Other projects are kind of building up on me.  I just acquired a new headliner for the airplane.  I have never installed a headliner in anything and I am missing some critical pieces.  So that will be an adventure.  I also have new tires arriving on the 10th for the airplane.  Airplane tires are tube-type on split rims.  So installation kind of goes...with one hand hold the tire in place, with the other hand, guide the tube in straight, and with the OTHER hand...  The weather stinks right now, so no flying.  But I want the airplane airworthy when the weather clears, so the tires have high priority.  

Oh.  And last weekend's wind storm blew half of our fencing down... I guess I should do something about that.
