New Windows Make An Appearance at the Local!

20160628_103447 smallWhile the new windows look much like the old, there is a vast difference in the exterior of the Local. Thanks to a matching grant from the Michigan Council of Arts and Cultural Affairs’ Capital Improvement Program our first significant upgrade since opening has been finished. We went from iron frames and single pane glass to energy efficient sealed double panes in aluminum framing. This should result in significant savings on utilities, even as the new windows exactly match the historic arrangement of lights and mullions they replaced.
