Lickteig Double-Hung Window with Sash Spring-Bolts

Lickteig Double-Hung Window with Sash Spring-Bolts
South Haven
Michigan

This window has ordinary single light check-rail sash held in position with spring bolts in place of sash pulleys and weights.  This is a faithful replication of the original window, and this type of construction was common for cheap work.  The frame has a one-piece sill and drip cap with bed moulding.  The casing is 1-1/8" thick in order to accomodate screens and storm sash.  Note that the sill projects slightly past the width of the casing.
