ARCHITECTURAL WOODWORK

OAK WINDOWS IN A 17TH CENTURY THATCHED COTTAGE. Handmade from ancient reclaimed oak and left to weather to a natural silvery grey colour, these windows replaced modern and unsightly softwood windows, which had rotted beyond economical repair.

The frames were based on the remains of what was believed to be an original, found in a corner of the overgrown garden when the house was  purchased.     

The four windows to the right of the building are divided up into four panels and have relatively small  rectangular pieces of glass, appropriate to itsí 17th century origins, whereas, on the far left, the windows are split into three and have larger glass panels more suited to the, later, 18th century extension.
