Long term restoration project

“When we bought the house 15 years ago, it had been left as an unfinished project. Immediately, we saw the potential that it had and were keen to put our stamp on it”

comments Mrs Aikens.

The property was formerly 3 separate cottages, part of a large mansion estate nearby. Now combined into one generously sized family home, the end product is the result of 2 years planning and execution by the Aikens family.

“We planned every single aspect of this project meticulously. We had to move out for 6 months, so the entire house could be gutted and rebuilt”.

Finding the perfect windows for the property

Originally in situ were original, single glazed windows that did a poor job of retaining heat and blocking out noise from the outside. With both a desire to drastically change the style of windows as well as research into what would look appropriate for the home, the Aikens used Photoshop as a tool for experimenting with different styles and finishes until they found their perfect solution.

Now in place are engineered, double glazed flush casement windows and French doors from the Timber Windows range. All are finished in ‘Smoke Cream’, featuring 27mm astragal glazing bars and a bespoke choice of handles on the French doors.

“Since the new windows have been installed, we have noticed the house is retaining much more heat. We have always been fairly self-sufficient, with log burners and the surrounding woodlands, and the new windows are helping enormously with this”

Mrs Aikens comments.
