Formerly the post office in this North Yorkshire Moors village, the home of Mr & Mrs MacMillan has undergone a dramatic renovation project including an oak framed and stone extension.

Due to its location, the homeowners had plenty of things to consider,
“this is a conservation village and is also within a national park meaning there were lots of restrictions and guidelines to follow, including providing samples of materials and colours we wanted to use.”

Their choices were dual coloured Engineered Meranti Hardwood flush casement windows and a Chalfont front door, painted French Grey externally and Straw internally. Across the back of the house, sets of large pane French doors are finished in the same colour choices, and liberate the newly extended kitchen and family area.

“When we visited the showroom, we just had the feeling that this was right; the products and the service. We could tell it was a reputable company.”

Quality Shines Through

Mr MacMillan explains the approach they took to the project,
“we’ve used quality products throughout the house; we could have gone for cheaper options in all areas, but we wanted to do this to the best level we possibly could, this included the windows and doors.”

Making the house comfortable to live in was a priority,
“we took a holistic approach to ensuring that the house was well insulated, and the windows and doors were a major contributor to the results we’ve achieved.”

“It’s been a real passion to carry out this project, and we’re really very happy overall, including the windows and doors, as we feel they look right, and are sympathetic to the style of the property.”
