Restoring Character to a Dream Home

When the Lovell family bought this former farmhouse in rural Worcestershire in 2014, it was very outdated and old fashioned,

“we stripped it back to a shell, and did a ‘ground-up’ renovation, all in all, this took 7 months, during which time we managed to uncover original beams that have been left exposed for their added character”

Mr Lovell comments.

“Having spent some three years looking for our dream home, we knew we’d found it but would have to undertake a lot of work here to realise that dream – the windows were all single glazed, most were rotten, some had seized up and there was also unsightly, old fashioned secondary glazing.”

Desiring Timber for Preservation and High Quality

Mr & Mrs Lovell explain that their vision was for restoring character, and using natural materials,

“the age and character of the property, meant there was never any doubt about using timber for the windows and doors, as they were best suited to preserve the look.”

Using slim sash windows and flush casements with 18mm astragal glazing bars, finished in Off-White, the homeowners tried to exactly replicate the originals, designing a new bay to match and taking the opportunity to convert a window opening into French doors, to aid the flow of the house and access to their beloved garden.

“When researching window companies, we were first and foremost looking for quality and products that were structurally sound; we wanted them to last and the guarantees offered by Timber Windows were therefore a big selling point.”

“It’s very quiet in the house now, and we don’t hear any noise from outside; we have good windows! Overall, we’re very pleased!”
