We have been making a fair few fixed louvres/ plantation shutters over the last few days. These are to match existing.

Colonial barsFinished Product, Work in progress
We are making a series of cedar frames with colonial bars. They will be sent off and some of the frames will be assembled on site to make a bay window (about an hour south of Adelaide). I am also trying out a new glass cleaning product which I must say is fantastic.

It is rapidly heading towards the end of the year.
Have some photos of what has been going on last few days…

Timber to Aluminium Bay windowFinished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress
Yesterday we installed a new bay window in aluminium – removing the existing timber frame which had rotted away. Kept the colonial bar look.
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 frameFinished 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.
Old and new SashesFinished Product
Old and their new replacement sashes. Putty glazed, same thickness glass so the old counter-weights will still work.
Bring in your old sashes and we can reproduce them. Same idea with flyscreens. Size and detail will dictate the cost, but we can quote once we see (or email dimensions and a photo).
A variety of works..Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress
Well, its been a hectic and busy few months for us all. Our timberside is literally filled with frames at the moment, and supply chains seem to lag along. We even had a problem of getting grey laminate glass for a short while…
