French Doors and Windows for Country Home

A large joinery project for a beautiful country home in Wiltshire.

We were asked to design and crafted a series of doors, french doors and windows which included 30 solid oak casement frames and sills, two double solid timber garage doors, two standard sized solid timber doors, two solid oak split stable doors with window panels, three solid oak double glazed french arched double patio doors, two cross lapped jointed vanity units and an enormous bay window housing a pair of french doors.

All of this joinery was for a property situated in the middle of the rolling Wiltshire countryside, comprising of the main house, a large garage and adjacent out house and patio area.

All of the joinery was handcrafted by the team in our workshop in Winsley. As always, we also finished the joinery and cabinetry in house and fitted the doors and windows with some of the finest UK ironmongery.

One particularly interesting aspect of this project was the glass being housed within the windows and occasionally door frames. It was ordered from a company that specialise in making replica double glazed steel, iron and lead windows. They keep the same authentic Crittall look but from the use of aluminium they achieve a slim profile allowing for maximum glass area. Once housed within our oak work, the stylised Tudor effect is spectacular.

The area of the project that we are most proud of is the joinery that went into the triple French arched doors. The size of the top curved section is striking once viewed in situ where they are afforded a south facing view of fields and sun.

It was fantastic watching this project develop from start to finish and involved great work from the whole team from our designers, craftsmen, painters and the team on site.
