The western front sash window has been very badly damaged. The top light has been badly broken with some of the frame and mullions and the bottom three panes of glass missing. One of the fake shutters has been ripped off too. The bottom light had one broken pane of glass. Both were covered with plywood.

The bottom right pane of glass replaced. The putty shows white compared to the old green painted putty.
The fixed pane with the original fly screen. All the fly wire netting has been ripped out. The panel of fly wire is hinged on the right or western side and a small bolt is used to hold it closed. Replacing the fly wire on both the front windows is another job to do on another day.
Another look at the open fly wire screen and replaced glass pane. It was a fairly windy day and the wind kept closing this empty screen on me as I worked on replacing the glass pane.
The room on the other side of the window now has much more light now that one of the plywood panels is gone. I’m very unsure about how to deal with the upper broken light. While a good cabinet-maker could make a new window frame the cost (potentially $1,000+) is going to keep it out of our reach for quite a while. I have been thinking about taking it out and seeing if I can have a go at repairing it. Finding a replacement in a second-hand building supplies has not happened yet.
