Project:  Georgia State Capitol Restoration
July 2004
Letter to Russell Browning
Owner, Shenandoah Restorations

Dear Russell,
I am happy to have the opportunity to express what a pleasure it has been working with Shenandoah Restorations, Inc. over that past 7 years on the restoration of the Georgia State Capitol.  Throughout multiple phases of work, your company has consistently delivered high quality service and an excellent product.  Both you and Todd Selke have been extremely helpful to the design team, as we have strategize to determine the best methods to restore, repair and thermally upgrade the Capitol's historic windows.  Once the design was complete, you provided competitive pricing and worked hard to deliver your product on time and in budget.  You were always helpful and reasonable when the inevitable unforeseen conditions arose.  In total, approximately 300 windows were restored and the monumentally scaled windows in the rotunda were carefully reproduced.  All this was achieved with no significant problems.  I sincerely believe that Shenandoah Restorations was instrumental in the successful restoration of the windows in this most important structure.

Project:  The First Presbyterian Church

Letter to Russell Browning
Owner, Shenandoah Restorations

Dear Buddy,
I think of you often as I attend services in the different buildings on our church campus where the stained glass windows which Shenandoah so beautifully and meticulously restored are located, and I wanted to tell you again what a wonderful job you and your personnel did for us.  It must be nice to work in a field such as yours where your work is viewed by so many people for so many years into the future - many artists who paint on canvas or other media must be envious of the exposure your firm's products get.

We truly appreciate the dedication you and your men gave to our church, and we trust God will continue to bless you in your work.
