Timber install photos

Finished Product

Last week we pulled out the old rotten windows in a lovely sun room. the floor was hand made parquetry, truly time-consuming to make.

We replaced the frames with new cedar frames. This time with no colonial bars, and increased the glass from 3mm float, to 6.38 clear comfort plus Low-E glass.

Finished Product, Work in progress

Every year it, work becomes crazy busy as orders increase, and time runs out.  here is a photo I’ve taken this morning giving an idea how little room we have to move at the moment in the factory.

Installing the arched windows

Finished Product, Work in progress

My last little post had a picture of arches being made.

OAK doorframe for a church

Work in progress

My entire last week was spent on a first floor of a hall installing 16 bronze anodise sliding windows.  It was a challenge (4 of us there all week) but in terms of photos, pretty boring.  But this was being made at the factory by my timber lads and when i returned to work I had to photo this and share it.

Solid Oak. roughly 2900 high x 3000 wide. We are making a pair of doors (again solid oak) which when we install the frame will be hung on pivots.

The fixed panels on the sides will be adorned with crosses and other ikons for the church.

2900 x 3000 or so. 2 doors on pivot hinges will be made and hung when we install it . for a church in adelaide. the panels on the sides will have crosses and other items

Aluminium Awning Window

Finished Product

We make a fair few of these style aluminium windows.  Commercial frame (101mm x 44.5mm) with an awning sash and lockable whitco chain winder.  Fly screen on inside.

The awning has no hinges or stays, and instead has a hook on the head and a matching hook on the top of the sash.  No moving on this turning point means nothing will wear out and break (as do hinges and non-friction stays after years of use)

Thought id take a photo before delivering it to a job site this morning.
