What are we doing this week?
Not quite finished yet, so apologies for the trailing wires etc, hopefully I will take a better picture later when complete.
Steve and Chris built these cupboards and shelving units using Tulipwood and mdf board, they were then spray sealed and primed only, ready for a final coat on site.
The top units will have a solid oak desk fitted shortly.
This property and one other had very slim sashes with single glazing (six windows in total).....we manufactured thicker sashes with a clever design feature which allowed us to incorporate 'Slimlite' sealed units finished with face putty, at the same time copying the internal mouldings....slim bars...horns etc.
The frames were refurbished i.e paint burned off, repairs carried out, then the timbers were treated with wood preservative and primed.
We used lead weight to counterbalance the sashes, timbers were vac-treated and primed prior to decorating, draught excluders were also fitted........just a good decoration needed.
The old doors were very rotten so we manufactured some bespoke french doors and top fan light using Accoya timber (check it out on the web) long lasting and crisp,we primed the doors and R.C Decorators are completing the decoration.
We also supplied fitted cupboards and shelving at this property, refurbished sliding sash windows and carried out repair work......all with a smile on our face!!!!
Ok I know we are still on this job, its been going on for a while now, however another stage complete, internal panels and architraves now fitted, the decorator will get another coat applied then the last phase will be the shutters....its been quite a job this one however looking the bee's knees!!!!!!
Hello!!! where has the time gone?... it looks like this is all we have done over four weeks, not true, apart from this lovely oak shelving unit (extra deep for large books) we have been busy refurbishing sash windows also working on a property in Birdham Pool small works to start with leading on to an oak furniture project (photo's to follow).
Myself, Steve and Chris were all fitting this one, only once again I am taking the photo
:-) so I am emitted, lovely frame and sashes, so much work gone into it.... we eventually will be bringing the pebble-dash down to meet the shaped top frame's as it looked many years ago!!
Shaped internal panels and architraves to follow.
What a great job!! we have been working on a brand new property in Bosham built buy the Germans (top quality I have to say), we built some walk in wardrobes and hall cupboards to hide away the coats and shoes etc, we used 30mm mdf board and Tulip wood all sanded to a fine finish, spray finish,
Ps...took us two days to work out the hi-tec boiling water tap for a cup of tea... must be getting old.
Hello..... a rare picture of me working, lovely customers and lovely project. We carried out work to change the staircase from painted panelling to oak, also curved oak skirting board and picture rail manufactured and fitted. We are now building some bespoke cupboards again using oak with a maple inlay....all need decorating yet but looking good....well done Steve Evans for some very nice joinery.
8.11.13 Well done Martin and Chris..... We completely refurbished these beautiful sliding sash windows, some of them have not opened for years, we balanced the sashes, fitted new cords and additional weight, we burned of the lumps and bumps ready for the decorator, we also supplied and fitted new conservation type parting bead and staff bead, all ready for decorating!!!
24.5.13 Fitted at last!! what a lovely job, took a little longer as we finished the doors using Omnia system for the first time. Spec as below
