We replaced fixed panels of glass along the full height of a stairwell – both west and east sides were replaced. the glass had been leaking into the stairwell. We replaced the glass, added new aluminium beads and resealed any gaps along the sides of the window.
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.
Cedar frames headed to venus bay
glass being shipped seperate.
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.
this sash with grey glass was originally putty glazed. client asked to remove the putty and rebead with custom bevelled beads. much easier to paint.
all the frames stacked up to give some workspace for more.
close up of a single hung lift up window. inside view (you see the sash lift handle) and double glazed. You can see the finish of the cedar timber is very beautiful.
This morning we removed 2 rotten timber framed louvre windows and replaced them with our aluminium residential sliding windows. Flange and angle to finish, with some timber beading to go on the inside. i left the lads to finish the job once we had the larger one screwed in. The owner was pretty happy and has asked us to quote for more along the side of the house.
Removing rotten wooden timbers and replacing with aluminium
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.
gluding up timbers to make a gate
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.
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.
Replacing a rotten timber box frame window with its new cedar replacement.
New cedar window installed into a prepared opening. we used square beading on the outside to match windows around the house.
look at this mess! this is early on in a window install. a timber window has been removed,and a new aluminium window is prepared for install
the post is pretty self explanatory.
the walls will be rendered at the final point of the buildings renovation.
I glazed these doors and windows yesterday (plus more not in view).
the bifold panels of glass weigh just over 30kilos each, so the doors stacked to one side is about 150kilos of weight hanging there. which illustrates why you need to install a bifold properly.
the glass is 4mm toughened clear, 16mm argon gap, 4mm toughened clear.
