are unique from building to building. A craftsman of the turn of the
century would take this opportunity to add an element of style and
artistic beauty to a structure. These elements defined each structure and
the prairie style. They are as varied as the men who carved them and as
beautiful as the landscape that inspired them.
Sills often times
followed in the style of the lintel and were usually weatherized to help
shed water during a storm.
The Jambs are the vertical elements of an opening and will usually
be created with the Lintel and Sill. This adds continuity and style to the
opening even when the stretchers in the field are of a different material.
We will recreate the lintels, sills, and jambs of the Kansas
prairie to fit the dimensions of your design. Please peruse our
OF HISTORIC DESIGN and share with us your thoughts and ideas.
“A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works
with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works
with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.”
