Window treatment

Douglas Amerson, who works for contractor Andrews and Lawrence, replaces windows in the president's house. The new windows are double-hung wood units replicating the six-over-six of the original 1840 house. In 1891, during a major remodeling of the house, the windows were replaced with one-over-one units that were on the house until last week.

On the outside of the wood windows is a thin layer of aluminum, which molds exactly to the profile of the wood casing and muntins.

The wood on the inside will be painted white. (Photo by Martin Vloet, U-M Photo Services)
