It was all about architectural salvage over last weekend.
The coffin carrier was filled to the roof.
Had I found any more, the tailgate would have been dropped, and the treasures strapped down.
A bunch of porch spindles.
A small section of the porch railing.
The guys cutting it away from the house were thoughtful enough to attach wood braces to keep it from falling apart.
And finally the last long piece.
They are a bit rickety, but who cares - they were saved!
MUNTINS VS MULLIONS
Do you know your muntins from your mullions?
Well, I found a stack of muntins in the sought after diamond shape.
Window Terminology (SOURCE here)
"A muntin is a strip of material, often wood, plastic, or aluminum, that holds panes of glass inside the larger frame of the window...one-piece muntins may be made of wood and snap over the single large piece of glass on the interior of a window to make it appear to be multiple smaller pieces of glass."
"Mullions, on the other hand, refer to the joint where two or more windows are joined or “mulled” together. This joint may offer structural support between windows or may simply be an architectural design element."
Now you know!
Another stack of windows.
Four over four's.
A small scalloped edged kitchen shelf ripped right from the wall.
All have been cleaned and taken to Riverfront Antique Mall to Booth W-10.
Some have sold.
