copper window screens

so far I've seen two of the grant recipient houses restored with copper window screens. and although I am not a huge fan of window screens on the front of houses, these definitely look unique:

turns out copper was the first material used for exterior window screens, but is a little harder to find these days ...and a little bit more expensive.

damn, all of these revamps of houses in anacostia that you're documenting are fantastic. i bet every neighborhood wishes they could be doing this!

I would be concerned about scrappers trying to steal the copper, however. Copper is a really hot commodity in this tough economy. Stay vigilant.
