Flush Casement Windows, French Doors and Conservation Entrance Door
Mr & Mrs Baker’s Sussex house, overlooking the South Downs has an idyllic outlook and they’ve carried out substantial work to make it into their family home, since moving in three years ago,
“as well as the windows and doors, we have also replaced the roof…there’s still lots to do internally but we can do this gradually, while enjoying time with our young family.”
Original Styling, Updated Technology
Originally a game keeper’s cottage, dating to 1840 it still had some original doors and windows, and whilst the owners admit they were lovely to look at, they were simply letting in a lot of draughts and not doing their job very well.
“We kept the original door knob and knocker, and Timber Windows of Horsham were able to transfer them on to our new doors for us, which is a nice nod to the past.”
Expert Advice from the Showroom
“Andy from the showroom was great, he helped with colour choices, giving us the benefit of his advice and presenting clear options to choose from.”
A large number of flush casement windows and French doors were installed throughout, including those with regular astragal bars and those with gothic style bars. Additionally, entrance doors in a colour complementary to Fired Earth ‘Carragheen’ were also installed with Antique Brass Unlacquered ironmongery.
The later part of the house had the gothic bars, which have been retained and also used now in other nearby windows to give a consistent look.
Mrs Baker summarises her feelings on the project,
“we’re very happy with how it has all turned out and the service we have received”.
