Banning Bugs at Oak St. Beach

Tip: click on any image below to view it full-size.

In the tall building in the center of the photo, a vintage luxury co-op across the street from Oak St. Beach, the owners wanted to enjoy the cooling summer breezes off Lake Michigan, along with their views of the lake. But even more than 20 floors above the street, insects proved to be nuisance. They contracted with us to build vintage wood screens to match the aesthetic of the building, and devise a method for securely attaching them, while making them easily removable for the exterior window washing, which is done 4 times per year.
