Am I being daft? Sash window query

Postby StevieB » 09 Aug 2019, 15:18

Currently building a couple of sashes to replace some rotten ones and ordered components from Chiltern Timber. With a traditional box sash window, the upper sash is towards the outside of the house and the lower sash to the inside. The top and bottom meeting rails from Chiltern have a bevel so they meet as per the figure on this page:

But, if the top rail of the bottom sash has the bevel on the outside as per the figure, then surely the putty side is internal to the house since the glass goes into the lower rebate? anyone ever heard of the putty being on the inside or have I got this totally screwed up?!

No, you're not being daft. Chiltern cocked up.
