We are flat out as the year winds down. So much so, i’ve had no time to post our works – even the more interesting ones. So keep in mind #thewindowmanSA on instagram has more photos as it’s quicker for me to do so.
Wed and Thurs we removed 2 corner timber windows which had extensive water rot.
We did one set each day.
before and after
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.
I was asked today – do you make doors?
we sure do! I decided to put a few door photos we have made into one pic. take a look!

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.

We made 2 of these (mirror image) sliding doors which i delivered last week. We also made 2 sliding windows almost identical (again mirror image). All delivered to the builder to install.

Its the start of a new financial year.
We received our brand new 1300mm wide belt sander last week (just waiting on the custom ducting to rock up). It will allow us to sand wide doors perfectly, whereas our old one was narrower and just a little bit old. This new one has all the bells and whistles.
Last friday we worked in Happy Vally to remove an existing 820wide hinged door and fixed lite window. the old window had 3mm float glass and up in the hills it must be quite cold. The new is a cedar 3 stacker door with 16mm double glazed units.
Here is a custom cedar window. we reused the hand made glass and leadlight to fit a new window size. custom beading and stop beading.
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.
the post is pretty self explanatory.
the walls will be rendered at the final point of the buildings renovation.
Well, earlier i posted some arched doors and doorframes which i loaded up on saturday. Monday Tom and I installed them. here are some photos.
The handcast iron gate hardware really made the frames stand out.
