Cohen-Bray House wins Ugly Window contest

Pardee Home Museum, Oakland

At a party held in the garden of the Pardee Home Museum on Thursday, 29 June, Wooden Window, Inc. of Oakland announced the results of its Ugly Window contest, which promised the winning entry a custom-made replacement worth up to $5,000.

The winning entry

An independent panel of judges selected five finalists from a pool of over fifty entries. The winner by the judges’ unanimous decision was the highly deserving historic Cohen-Bray House, none of whose windows are particularly ugly, but some are deteriorated to such an extent that they have contributed water infiltration that caused additional damage within the building.

Party guests were treated to a tour of the Pardee Home’s ground floor.
