Spreading that Transom Love

From the folks behind the new building at 1020 Girard St, NW:

“Thanks to you, your readers and posters we wanted to do a little something special!”

Very cool!

And a reader writes:

“Dear PoP,

I always loved it when you feature sweet transoms on your blog, and now I want in on the action. I JUST bought my first home (found it on a recent GDoN post, no less!) and have a nice clean pane of glass above my front door itching for some color. I’m not at all creative, so I’m wondering — where do you go to get a transom made? Are there pros out there that will do this for you, and about how much can I expect it to cost?

Thanks! Hopefully one day my transom will be sweet enough for PoP. :)”

Congrats on your new home! I once made some recommendations here but the two I’ve corresponded with are:

For those who’ve had custom transoms made – how much did it cost?

You can see some of my favorite transoms here.
