A Seat by the Window

Built in Oakland the year of the San Francisco Earthquake, this Oakland home came to a new owner with its shares of issues — termite problems, settled foundations and original wood windows replaced with aluminum.

The basic structure of the house was solid, if a bit off-square, so one of the owner’s first priorities was the restoration of the home’s windows to their original all-wood craftsmanship. He wanted to create a window seat nook that would bring back the decorative divided-lites and create a focus for the living room that would also elevate the houses street appearance and curb appeal.

IMG_0349Wooden Window fashioned casement windows to meet those requirements and provided the expertise for seamless installation in spite of the off-kilter structure of the house.

The owner couldn’t be happier with the “amazing” result.
