Renovated Rural Home

Mr & Mrs Cooper put down roots in this rural Somerset cottage, around three years ago,

“we have carried out lots of work on the house, having bought it from the family of the deceased, former owner. Some of the windows here were plastic and honestly quite hideous; we believe these to have been recent replacements, made for a quick sale before it went on the market.”

The windows and doors of a wooden construction that did remain, were all rotten,

“they were pretty bad, the kitchen window even had a hole in it that let water in, when it rained”

Mrs Cooper describes.

Respecting History

The cottage dates to the 1700s and has had sympathetic extensions added in the past thirty years, with Mr and Mrs Cooper wanting to ensure they respected the history of the property too,

“we knew we always wanted to have timber windows put in throughout; it’s the only style and material that would really suit the house.”

“We don’t enjoy living in a mess so we didn’t want to hang around with changing the windows and doors when we moved in – we got on the case right away, carrying out research online and visiting the lovely shop in Clifton.”

The showroom lived up to our high expectations

“Through a process of elimination, comparing other suppliers, we chose Timber Windows – I was very excited to visit the Timber Windows showroom based on what I’d seen online, and it didn’t disappoint”

Mrs Cooper says.

Lipped casement windows finished in ‘Off-White’ were chosen throughout, along with a lovely stable door and cottage style front door, both of which are finished in ‘French Grey’ with ‘Off-White’ frames and carry period black ironmongery.

“We’re very happy, very much so, it’s been such a lovely thing, to restore the look and feel of the cottage.”
