New lease of life for a neglected window

Having been advised by a local council listed building department that they had received a number of complaints about a run down property the customer finally took action.
I was advised that these windows had not been touched or opened since the 1970s. As you can see they are in a pretty poor state although surprisingly little rot was present.
All the glass had to be removed, and rebates raked out. The joints required gluing up and clamping. The glazing beads needed replacement partings -that’s the timber between the glass and putty that forms part of the glazing bead. All the various layers of paint had to be stripped, a tedious task.
In total 120hours were spent on this one box sash window and frame.
