Installing windows

Whether new or old, the final step in any process is installing the windows. In new buildings, the windows are generally glazed with double-pane clear glass, and the stained glass itself is stopped in from the inside. Here the artist nails in the pre-bent custom-laminated trim, formed to fit the window arches.

In old restorations, however, the stained glass itself may be the only glazing, and was usually installed from the outside. Here, Greer removes a panel at St. Charles, a process made much more interesting by a good, stiff High Plains wind.
