Cottage Casement Windows, Entrance Door, Sash Windows and Flush Casement Windows
Grade II Listed, a conservation area, an original structure on a historic site, wishing to change window designs and situated within the boundary of a National Park; it would possibly be expected that the odds were stacked against approval, however Mr and Mrs Toogood successfully gained agreement for their new, sympathetically styled windows and door.
New windows for 17th century listed property
Originally a cow shed, dating to the 1670s, the building’s large arched window, harks to its use as a doorway for the carts. The building was given listed status based on its age and being one of just three original structures in the area.
Mr & Mrs Toogood explain
“the house was freezing previously, the windows were poorly fitted and had various makeshift solutions to plug holes or keep them closed – we didn’t know what would be found once the installation started; the team did an excellent job of the fitting.”
Approval process made simple thanks to Timber Windows
“Having the drawings and specifications from the Timber Windows system was excellent for demonstrating all the information to the planners.”
The absence of glazing bars in windows often makes the process slightly simpler in planning terms and as was the case here, the homeowners were able to gain approval for 18mm double glazed units in some of the items.
“The house already feels a lot warmer and throughout the recent winter, the heating was used far less.”
