This is a little cedar bathroom window we have made with inbuilt shelf/cabinet with mirror. Lovely little thing.
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…
Regards PG @ TWM.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Yesterday we removed 4 sash window which had become very old and rotten and replaced with residential aluminium windows.
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.
