Improving the outlook

The Granary, located in a village just outside Bath and built in the 1870s is now home to Mr & Mrs Chapman, having been a working farm building, a school and a town meeting house before being converted to a residence in the 1980s.

“We’ve always hated the uPVC windows our home had been given. The frames of the old windows started to fall apart, so we decided to take the leap and get them changed, plus we’d always wanted timber to match the age and character of the property” Mrs Chapman explains.

“Another homeowner in the village had some lovely looking windows fitted; I knocked on their door to ask who did them and once we had the recommendation for Timber Windows, we visited our local showroom.”

“We’re so relieved to come home to windows which match the property after all these years; we didn’t want over the top feature windows, just a simplistic look and one that was in keeping….matching and blending in was important.”

“We chose a design that had less bars than before, and we’ve noticed we get a lot more light in now – plus we’ve started to enjoy the views out of the windows again!”

The majority of the windows chosen were cottage flush casements in a dual colour finish with ‘French Grey’ externally and a close match of Little Greene’s ‘White Lead 74’ internally; French doors also have the same painted finishes.

Commenting on the installation process, Mrs Chapman describes, “the fitting ran smoothly and professionally, and the guys worked very hard with all different shapes and sizes of windows and doors – everything was finished off really well, and we didn’t need to redecorate either.”
