Back from the Easter Break. This photo is the job we did last week at McClaren Vale. Enclosing one side of a verandah with commercial frame and laminate glass. Originally it had roll down blinds but the poor kids were too cold from the wind. Had to install between the large steel poles that were existing. You can see the notch out on the flashings we had to custom make at the bottom of the poles. On the side we added a smaller panel 1100mm high to stop wind as requested by the builder.
So its saturday morning for the long weekend (public holiday monday). Today i am loading frames up for a job being shipped to venus bay.
glass being shipped seperate.
Yesterday myself, Tom and Andrew installed this bay window (and another double window which ill add photos later). The original window was rotting away and falling apart. White cathedral glass on top colonial sashes, clear laminate on bottom panels. Sides are fixed/dummy sashes with the middle panel able to be lifted up (screens not in photo but sit on outside.)
Well i keep getting emails and cold calls saying i need to update my website. yet it seems to be doing ok.
Today i thought id post a couple of photos of our factory floor, a sash i re-beaded this morning and a close up of a lift up window – you get to see the beautiful grain of cedar up close. lucky you.
Well late december on the very last job for the year i managed to cut my hand (snapped razer blade). An operation, a cast and some nerve damage was my end of year. However i am mostly mended and we have been back at TWM since early Jan. Although we make aluminium, it is the timber side which is very busy at the moment.
Some of this work is headed for rural SA, and into Victoria. As the years go by we are finding that we are doing more work for interstate clients as well.

We just finished this dogleg door-frame and door. The windows either side of the doorframe are single hung windows with grey glass. Grey glass in the door. All cedar.
Just got to deliver these in the next day or so now.
These are 2 new windows installed this week.
Here we replaced a rotten sill and transom in an atrium.
New glass in the bottom panels, siliconed joined together.
New glass beading around. ready for the painter to come in and finish off.
Just a few photos of various bits n’ pieces that have occurred lately.
the post is pretty self explanatory.
the walls will be rendered at the final point of the buildings renovation.
