Keeping it real...retain the period features
This was a wonderful project to be involved in, the customer wanted to retain the original Victorian glass from the fanlight above the entrance door and the nine pane porch window.
We carefully removed the glass panels, installing temporary glazing while the stained glass was cleaned, repaired and encapsulated into energy efficient double glazed units.
The entrance door was replaced with a solid panel Accoya door, finished in Farrow & Ball colour Inchyra Blue. With polished brass ironmongery and a new wall mounted number plate to match. The frame was a replica style to the original with the fanlight above manufactured to take the new encapsulated unit.
The window aperture could not be increased in size to allow for a bigger window so we had devise a layout to accommodate the larger glass panes into an already narrow window design, without compromising the period style. The glass units were set into the new window in exactly the same position as the original, as it's the little details that make all the difference.
The customer was extremely happy not only with the look and the quality of the new items but what stands out to the home owner is the fact the porch is now draft free!
We have since manufactured additional items for this client. We enjoy building relationships that last.
