Timber continues to be a supply issue. Hard if not possible to source long lengths of certain timbers. One supplier sent me a pack list of 7 small packs.

I ordered 5 of them and he replied saying 2 had been sold already. Blink and you miss it.

Wood glue supplier has been waiting on his orders since august 21. We have bought the last he has, and will need to use a level up in glue (increase in $$$) instead once our regular glue runs out.

Laminate glass from one of our main suppliers doubled about 2 weeks ago. others have jumped by at least 25%.

Arched cedar frame

Finished Product

This cedar arched frame was just picked up from the factory. We made this based on an arch template given to us, and working on opening sizes for existing leadlight the client wanted to re-use. Hoping once installed they will send us some finished photos!

Remember = everything we make is of a custom size to suit our customers. We don’t have to work on set/standard sizes.

Aluminium to Cedar Window install

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

Yesterday we removed 2 old aluminium sliding windows (the original timber frames were still hidden behind them and also had to be removed).

We kept the internal linings, nosing and aves as they were in good condition and there was no need to replace them. But more care is required when removing the existing frames so as to not damage those internal timbers.

We replaced them with new cedar single hung windows. Dummy side sashes (they dont move). Locks, screen and operated with spiral balances (black tubes that hold the sash up and down – as opposed to weights and pulleys in a box frame window (we we also make).
