The new crown moulding applied to the jambless and small window to the left of fireplace. The mouldings were cut out of the solid and are hand planed by a friend of mine; Bill Mc Millen. The profiles of the mould of jambless hood came from were mould bedded into the plaster surface . The moulding profile of the window transom was designed from the crown over a door in the same room which was installed in the room at the same phase of construction. New jamb boards were hand planed and a moulded edge designed after the jamb boards of the DeWindt house. The only other house found to have these early jambs applied to a smokey jambless.
