My husband and I recently bought our first home! What an exciting/scary/rewarding experience it’s been so far. The home is historic, built in the early 1900’s and what we loved most about it was that a lot of the charming character remained when the house was restored. Each of the windows still use a weighted pulley system, shown above. We spent part of the day sealing them to ensure we weren’t letting any cold air in and vice versa. These old windows can be drafty, we’re finding out.
