Old and New – shingle house window replacements

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

The original window- sorry i dont know why the picture image failed so badly. The Window was rotten and the top sash glass was ready to drop out the base of the sash.

Yesterday we installed 2 windows. 1 is a fixed frame where we reused the old leadlight.  Pictures speak louder than words;-

New window in, but yet to cap/finish the surrounds

Alum to timber install

Uncategorized

this morning we removed an aluminium garden bay window in a kitchen, and replaced it with a more traditional window that would have originally been there.

This is the aluminium window we were to remove. This is to coincide with a kitchen refit inside. note the roof- that actually opens!

Window removed, and the opening exposed. You can see how much silicon on the sides (and head) were used on the alum window.

New Cedar Window. Quads outside, lining and aves on the inside. new kitchen bench will slide right up against the window sill.

Bespoke Custom Door assembly

Uncategorized, Work in progress

After a few days out on work sites installing some doorframes, and a bay window repair, I’ve come to the factory and seen the lads assembling this exceptional custom door.  Just looking at it midway through assembly gives a sense of how much time and work is involved in this sort of project.

Well this covid-19 virus sure has played havoc with our economy and our lives through out the world. Take care of one another, stay safe and clean your hands often.

 

As much as work has dropped off a cliff, we are still here. Today we delivered this meranti sliding doorframe.

Well we have been back to work after the Christmas break – George and I since Jan 8th, and the rest of our staff on the 23rd.

Whilst I have been uploading more pictures through Instagram, I must admit I’ve been a bit lax on our website here.  Here are some of the things we have been up to – I could post a lot more, but I need to get back to glazing some sashes.

here is hoping to a successful and happy 2020 for all.

Some cedar casement windows complete and ready to be picked up

here is the new window, western red cedar.

Scissor winders + stays and latches for the hardware.

Here you can see one of the other windows, internal view. Notice the scissor winder hardware. Top panels of glass obtained from the wonderful team at the Glass Emporium, as per clients request.

 

In our factory, we are running up door stiles for assembly. Notice; full timbers (not blocks glued together with a veneer) and mortice + tennon joins. In the background you can see the solid 150×50 EX WRC timber pack which is how it all starts out.

Today we installed 8.76 OBSERVA glass into c-channel framing we had put up a few days earlier.  It is in a medical clinic. the staff can see into the patients room, without the patients unable to see back into their office.

8.76 observa glass

this type of glass works best when you have a dark internal room, looking out into a bright room.
