In This view of the gable is a casement window ( a Bolkozijn window type in dutch). This window now is being restored . Originally this casement was in the front wall of the first addition of the house. When the Elmendorf's chose to add a work room on to the building ( second addition) and to update the first ; this casement was removed and placed in the gable wall. Upon placement in this space, the casement sash were changed from a leaded casement to a wooden mullioned sash retaining the original strap hinges. The window opening would have been also fitted with shutters.
