Nashville Street new orleans

One of the most striking details of this house are the windows.
I have noticed that a number of renovations in town have used vinyl windows which are much smaller and not paticularly interesting.
Craftsman Windows

This last photo is a house around the corner from me which is in the process of being renovated. It was in much worse shape than this house.

    You mention the vinyl windows that many people are putting in their homes – rebuidling a house on Nashville, I might add that finding approiated windows (and other needed supplies) are very difficult to find in New Orlenas. I hired my brother in law (who is a furniture maker) to hand make doors and other millwork for me to match what is in the house. Finding craftsmen is very difficult. Don’t blame people because they can find good people.

  • Yes Judy, They are hard to find, I have 3 flooded houses. But Vinyl windows are more expensive to replace if you break one,you must replace the entire window.
    In addition you lose resale value on your home if you decide to sell

    If some of these homes salvaged the materials we would have many more affordable options.
