Jerry at work refurbishing Savannah State University’s historic windows. Here are two views of the windows from the architectural drawings. This is Adams Hall. The double hung windows are eight feet tall with four foot radius half circles above.
Following best practices,we are using reclaimed wood to make the repairs. Southern Pine Company of Georgia,under contract with Hardin Construction,has the job of assisting in phase two of renovations to Morgan Hall (circa 1920s) and Adams Hall (1931). The windows of both buildings had been neglected for a long time. Southern Pine is using reclaimed cypress from the window casings at Savannah’s Neal-Blun complex at 3515 Montgomery Street for the material to make repairs and replacements for the damaged sash. Seasoned for decades,the cypress is a perfect match.
Besides window sash refurbishment,Southern Pine is contributing more reclaimed materials for Savannah State. Crown molding,dentils,friezes,jambs,and sills out of reclaimed pine are all being reproduced from wood that has been rescued. And the workshop smells great!
