Arched cedar frame

Finished Product

This cedar arched frame was just picked up from the factory. We made this based on an arch template given to us, and working on opening sizes for existing leadlight the client wanted to re-use. Hoping once installed they will send us some finished photos!

Remember = everything we make is of a custom size to suit our customers. We don’t have to work on set/standard sizes.

Old and new Sashes

Finished Product

Old and their new replacement sashes. Putty glazed, same thickness glass so the old counter-weights will still work.

Bring in your old sashes and we can reproduce them. Same idea with flyscreens. Size and detail will dictate the cost, but we can quote once we see (or email dimensions and a photo).

A variety of works..

Commercial frames – automated door!

Well, its been a hectic and busy few months for us all. Our timberside is literally filled with frames at the moment, and supply chains seem to lag along. We even had a problem of getting grey laminate glass for a short while…

here we are running up endless strips of stop and parting beads. All cedar in this lot.
A rather large cedar door. We will hang it tomorrow as a cavity slider at a home.
Door and sash rails. Mortice and Tennon cuts exposed almost ready for assembly.
Made these very little custom casement “windows”. Mill finish. Using angles to make a Z shape, and basic sash stock. I believe they will be used in gravestone heads once they are anodised gold. The perspex sheets have a protective film, but are clear once removed. They will add a little lock when they are ready to install.
This we installed a few weeks back. The original window had a tree branch meet it with force.
200×200 Jarrah. Yes indeedy.
OK one of the biggest differences in timber/aluminium windows are colonial bars. In timber each “square” is a seperate panel of glass, and the lines are full timber. In aluminium (usually) the bars are glued onto the one large panel of glass. The bars are siliconed on both sides to give the illusion of seperate pieces.
Glazing some tiny awning cedar windows.
Make something wide and heavy they said.

Aluminium to Cedar Window install

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

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).

Blackbutt Stacker Doors

Finished Product, Work in progress

Blackbutt or Ironwood is a very dense hardwood. nearly 900kilos a cubic meter its almost 3x heavier than the cedar we usually work with.  Here we have made a corner stacker door system + a standard stacker door. We will install tuesday at mt barker.

 

Alum to timber install

Uncategorized

this morning we removed an aluminium garden bay window in a kitchen, and replaced it with a more traditional window that would have originally been there.

This is the aluminium window we were to remove. This is to coincide with a kitchen refit inside. note the roof- that actually opens!

Window removed, and the opening exposed. You can see how much silicon on the sides (and head) were used on the alum window.

New Cedar Window. Quads outside, lining and aves on the inside. new kitchen bench will slide right up against the window sill.

Bespoke Custom Door assembly

Uncategorized, Work in progress

After a few days out on work sites installing some doorframes, and a bay window repair, I’ve come to the factory and seen the lads assembling this exceptional custom door.  Just looking at it midway through assembly gives a sense of how much time and work is involved in this sort of project.

 

Remove and install of Aluminium Windows

Finished Product, Work in progress

Yesterday we removed 3 old aluminium sliding windows which had 3mm float glass, and replaced them with new slightly larger residential framing( depth 60mm) glazed with 6.38 clear laminate glass. Awnings with chain winders and screens.  The result was quite dramatic, with a fair few compliments as people passed by.

3 of us on the first day, and1more morning to just finish some angles on the outside.
