Last day of the financial year. I’ve filled the factory as much as possible with timber before our suppliers start upping the price of the raw timbers…
This is a little cedar bathroom window we have made with inbuilt shelf/cabinet with mirror. Lovely little thing.
Yesterday we removed 2 old aluminium sliding windows (the original timber frames were still hidden behind them and also had to be removed).
We kept the internal linings, nosing and aves as they were in good condition and there was no need to replace them. But more care is required when removing the existing frames so as to not damage those internal timbers.
We replaced them with new cedar single hung windows. Dummy side sashes (they dont move). Locks, screen and operated with spiral balances (black tubes that hold the sash up and down – as opposed to weights and pulleys in a box frame window (we we also make).
Just back in the office after this mornings install. Old Casement window had well and truly rotten away. New Cedar Awning window – clear glass, and winder + screen on inside.
Look at how many frames we have in the factory at this one moment. Running out of space.
Well we have been back to work after the Christmas break – George and I since Jan 8th, and the rest of our staff on the 23rd.
Whilst I have been uploading more pictures through Instagram, I must admit I’ve been a bit lax on our website here. Here are some of the things we have been up to – I could post a lot more, but I need to get back to glazing some sashes.
here is hoping to a successful and happy 2020 for all.

here are 4 arched fixed lite windows which I need to take to the glazier to get the glass cut. each one is slightly different based on the template supplied.
also- I have set up an INSTAGRAM page for our photos. go check out #thewindowmanSA on Instagram !
If you scroll a bit back you might see a raked frame in our factory. here it is now installed (today).
probably will install this frame next week. glass is on hold for delivery to site.
