Stained Glass Beauty

Stained glass beauty

After a long, long effort by our two kids, the stained glass is finally installed above the doorway. In honor of the name of our property, Wild Crane Overlook, it has a great blue heron standing in the water. (I know, I know, there is a difference between cranes and herons but crane sounded better in the name and herons are on the lake, so we’ll just pretend.)  It was not easy to get a photo as the back light from the window wanted to darken out the walls, but I got up early, before the sun got over the trees and took a picture.  There was just enough dawn light to see the window and not black out the walls.  I tried for a close up about a 20 minutes later and it didn’t work.

We are so happy with how it turned out.  The colors are wonderful with the timber frame and the green walls.  When we bought the doors we were told (incorrectly) that we couldn’t get the beveled glass in the arch top and it always looked so plain.  The good thing is that it allowed us to have the window done and I think it looks so much better that the beveled glass ever could.

    Looks pretty nice doesn’t it. They only took about an hour to get it in. It looks even better in person. I can’t wait for you to see it.
