We dont always install the frames we make. This load is being delivered so a builder can install them. glass to arrive when they are ready.
A few doors are being finished today, take a look;
I am often asked what meranti and cedar looks like when finished. Here is a photo. Cedar is on top, and when stained has a really lovely grain come up and through. Meranti is usually a little redder (but can range in colour tones from near white, to almost yellow) and has a finer, more sinewy grain. Cedar also varies quite a lot in colour tone, from yellows, reds, and reddy brown. Cedar is a soft timber and you can easily dent it or push your fingernail into the timber. Meranti is much harder.
Probably about 70% of our manufactured windows and doors are in cedar, followed by meranti with about 25% and then a very small percentage is a variety of other timbers like oak, blackbutt, kapur, jarrah etc.
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.
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
a few doors are getting finished off all at once.some are being putty glazed, most have timber beading.
Here are 2 new items completed (plenty of other things have gone out, but arent as interesting).
