This weekend I washed away 49 years of grim off the windows. After washing the windows Bill and I placed clear vinyl seal on the window edges of each pane. This is designed to help prevent drafts. I also think it will protect each pane. No more glass on glass.

I also put new weatherstrip pile along the edge of the window. This too helps prevent drafts.

The rest of the weekend was spent sanding the birch with steel wool to prep it for the second coat of shellac. And I polished on the aluminum trim on the door frame. It's only about 1/2 complete.
