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.
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.
Today we went on site to glaze some windows we had manufactured earlier.
all western red cedar, and in the pics below you can see corner window with silicon join glass.
My last little post had a picture of arches being made.
here is the photo of one of the windows being installed.
it went almost perfect today, i had the first window out by 8am, and the new ones fit perfectly with no need to adjust or alter.
I’ve been pretty slack posting new bits n pieces up.
too much to do!
new window made basedon old broken one. quite ugly but who are we to decide. it also has pink glass for it.
double glazed cedar lift up windows.

sash rails being prepared for assembly. all those round bits on the end become the sash horns. photo’d in black and white for a change
A nice job today, removing old glass, colonial bars, transoms, mullions, sashes and so on. replaced with 10.38 laminate glass for a stronger and safer result, and with a much fuller view to the river (west lakes).
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.

Spent a few days installing office partitions, doors, glass and locks on various floors of a franklin st building in adelaide’s CBD. we re-used some glass panels, and some doors, with the rest being manufactured in our factory and then installed on site.
a WIP photo.
Very hard work with most items requiring transport up staircases.or lifts.
We have just finished this beautiful doorframe.
It has an arched head, awning (wind out) sashes in the side lites with colonial bars.
