Windows

Category: Barn Conversion Journal July 21st, 2008 by mbc

We have windows and a couple of doors, both big and small and all of them white. They’re not all in yet, but we’re getting there.

The windows are hardwood and were hand-made relatively locally from (sustainable we are told) African hardwood.

I never intended to go for hardwood windows – softwood seemed more than adequate and safely removed from the ethical hardwood debate. However, the size of the large cart-door screens & the need for structural integrity coupled with the advice I received on the most appropriate materials dictated the choice of hardwood.

I must say I’m pleased with the final product.

We also debated the final finish, but stained or polished hardwood just seemed to be too barn conversion and twee, so a painted finish won out. They currently look worrying like uPVC as the undercoat has a pearly whiteness to it, but a couple of coats of paint should remedy that … now just to decide on the colour!

If you enjoyed that post, then read these…

Attention to detail…
So, as we have started work, we need to think about all those details that I’ve put to one side until we had a builder.

Bees
Last year I noticed that there was a colony of bees living in the base of a red wood tree near my garden gate.

Pipes
Now we have pipes (and lots of them as well).
