These are before and after photos of the office of J & S. Contractors on Williamson Street in the Forty Acres neighborhood of Wilmington, Delaware. Built around 1895 as a livery stable to serve the workers in the nearby row houses and single family homes, it had been used by a plumbing supply company prior to present owner, John W. Piazza renovating it as an office, workshop and storage for his business.
In the next 2 pictures, you can see what has become of the cupola on top of this Forty Acres unique building--what originally was louvered, now (2 comments)
We had the rare opportunity last week to watch the re-installation of a restored Palladian window at a house museum in Old New Castle, Delaware. The George Read II House was built around 1800 by the son of a signer of the Declaration of Independence. This window is at the end of the hall on the second floor and has a view of the Delaware River. The property is owned by the Delaware Historical Society. The work is being done by Dale Frens of Frens & Frens Architects under the Save America's Treasures program. The contractor is J. S. Cornell (0 comments)
Historic Window Guide--The Anatomy of a Double Hung Window - 01/24/10 07:10 PM
Well, there are windows, and then there are windows. This posting is going to be about windows. Sounds simple, right? First, let's look at a window which has the different parts broken down (courtesy of a display at the George Read II House in New Castle, Delaware).
Starting at the bottom, there is the apron (1). If you follow the trim to the left and upwards, you will find the window casing (2). Inside of that is the window jamb (3) which abuts the window. The next part is easy--(4)is the glass light or pane.

This one talks about the beginnings of the City of Wilmington and brings it up to date as far as general historical information.
Hope you find this entertaining and are curious about matters concerning Delaware History and historic homes in Delaware and the surrounding area presented by Your Historic Homes Resource, Carolyn Roland (0 comments)
What's what with old house fireplaces? A Story from the past. - 01/09/10 08:00 PM
If you are in an historic house and are in a room that pretty obviously was the kitchen, it doesn't take a genius to figure it out. Our first picture is of an early 18th Century home near West Grove, Pennsylvania. There is an obvious hearth made of brick, and a large wooden beam forming the front of the opening. It is a little hard to see, but on the left of the back corner, we can see metal eyes where the crane that supported pots over the fire was inserted. On the right side, we can see the opening that once led (2 comments)
