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.

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.

A few random photos of things going on.

Yesterday i had to empty the sawdust bins, which had completely overflowed.

If you have never cleaned up massive piles of sawdust, I suggest you try it just so you know you should avoid it.

Cleaning out the sawdust extractor after one of our bins overfilled. aaaaah sawdust, it gets everywhere.

Making new timber sashes based on the old ones given to us. A common issue for timber sashes is they rot in the rain over the years, you cant repair them – you need new ones!
