Historic Reproduction of Custom Wood Windows and Doors for Yale University

After sitting vacant for many years, the historic Davies Mansion located on the campus at Yale University was painstakingly restored by the university in 2000.  Wood Window Workshop was hired to replicate the windows and doors of this 19th century home designed by Henry Austin, a well known Victorian architect.
