Last week three of us worked in Glenelg, installing some aluminium sliding windows, and the main task – a wall cut and install of a timber bifold window with timber servery bench. A lintel was used in this process.
some photos showing a brick wall being cut and bifold installed.
The inside is then finished with a bullnose sill, quads inside and out and the mortar from the bricks re-done.
I (hi! im Peter, the production manager) -took this photo of Tom (who has been installing and making windows longer than I have been alive). He is making the glazing bead on each pane of glass. Tom has more experience up his sleeve than I could ever hope for and is a valuable asset to our team, and frankly, a surrogate uncle to me.
Every year it, work becomes crazy busy as orders increase, and time runs out. here is a photo I’ve taken this morning giving an idea how little room we have to move at the moment in the factory.
Today we went on site to glaze some windows we had manufactured earlier.
all western red cedar, and in the pics below you can see corner window with silicon join glass.
My last little post had a picture of arches being made.
here is the photo of one of the windows being installed.
it went almost perfect today, i had the first window out by 8am, and the new ones fit perfectly with no need to adjust or alter.
Making arched frames. Considerable time and effort is made on each arch, here we have some being glued up.
Just thought id upload these photos showing me replacing a door stile.
replacing a door stile damaged by break and entry.
Later today we will go install it.
