Windows

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!
