Bastrop Historic High School in Bastrop, LA sat vacant for almost 30 years until an architect converted it into apartments.  Since it was built nearly 100 years ago, the people of the city wouldn’t let him replace the windows, but common sense and the bank wouldn’t let him keep the old energy wasting windows.  Magnetite allowed him to keep the beautiful wooden windows, but allowed the building to meet today’s energy standards, which made the banker and the town’s people happy.
