There is a brief mention in one of the early pages about the beam over the brick alcove at the end of the living room.
Reviewing the photographs: no exposed steel mullions - no surprise there, all cased out in wood.
So I wonder if I should presume that the typical sash detail on the prints shown here: are all bolted steel rectangles covered in wood?
They are large dimensioned casements, so maybe bolted steel frames were required.
The mullions between the casement windows contain structural steel T's.
These T's are capped at the bottom with a steel plate and rest on the sill of the low brick wall.
The detail does not show any connection between the mullion and the brick wall.
Of course the T's are welded to the beam above.
