Last week three of us worked in Glenelg, installing some aluminium sliding windows, and the main task – a wall cut and install of a timber bifold window with timber servery bench. A lintel was used in this process.
some photos showing a brick wall being cut and bifold installed.
The inside is then finished with a bullnose sill, quads inside and out and the mortar from the bricks re-done.
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.
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
Today we glazed some arched windows we had made. Linings/beads to go on at the very end. We had a number of cars stop along the road saying how impressed they were with these frames.
Yesterday, we removed a window at a hairdresser which had been hit by a car.
A meranti 4 panel fixed lite, just under 5meters wide. 10.38 clear laminate glass was used.
Installed this window yesterday, very pleased as we managed to remove the old glass panes from the old sashes, and re-use them in the new window.
The day before we did this – a cedar sliding door and window. up in a horse farm. the view was lovely.
Cedar sliding window and door.
and earler on in the week we finished off some vent locks and 1 window for a job we had done a few months prior
brown aluminium single hung windows with timber surrounds.
This morning we set up 2 bifolds for installation. here is a photo of the work being carried out. I left the lads there to finish the glazing, so its not a finished photo.
Cedar bifold doors.
1 is 3 panel, other is 5 panel.
This morning, we had 3 bifolds up and screwed in by 9:30am.
I’ve come back to the factory to relax and do this post, whilst the lads struggle on and do the finishing touches. Monday we glaze them.
Here is our job site. timber posts between bifolds.
