Plantation shutters

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

We have remade a whole house load of plantation shutters. these are operarable, but really play a more decorative role on the house rather than function. we had the best originals to work off, the rest were much too rotten. lots of time/ labour for these.

A pair of custom cedar gates. The curve was based off a template from the originals.

About to fit the hardware to a single hung window (with spiral balances).
Our aluminium awning window frame. It is a 60mm frame, so a little chunkier than most residential frames. Outside view
