In collaboration with Chris Simmons of Heritage Builders and Remodelers, LLC and Anthony "Tony" Brown, we repaired, remediated, or completely rebuilt 9 dormer windows on this 1835 home in the Frankford Neighborhood of Philadelphia. Chris has an encyclopedic knowledge of historic building techniques used in the area. He got a moulding planer and had custom knives made so that we could reproduce the original trim, much of which had been damaged by weather and insects. Tony is a super skilled carpenter who bent the copper sill pans and who I worked with to mill and install the trim. Chris jointed one board that the carpenter bees went to town on and you could see all their little tunnels.
