The top photo is of Art Methodist Church located about 6 miles east of Mason, Texas on Highway 29. The lower photo is the historical marker at the front of the church.
These are photos of the shutters we rebuildt to match the 100 year old shutters that were on the Church.
The smaller photos are of the completed shutter installation. The hinges in the photo were cast by Alamo Iron works in San Antonio, Texas for the original installation. If you look closely at the hinge you will see that the base is the silhouette of the Alamo.

The video shows a new concept for installing shutters. By using magnets we are able to get a neater fit. This method allows the shutter to blend into the window. In many cases other shutter installations look "added on" when added to windows.
Also, the use of magnets eliminates need to move furniture placed in front of the window, as seen in the video.
