NEW TIMBER WINDOWS IN NORTHUMBERLAND
A tranquil resting place. Early December sunlight shines softly onto our newly-installed windows in Northumberland, between Morpeth and Ponteland. These are flush casement windows designed to recall the proportions of sash windows but with the functionality of top-hung outward-opening windows. Upstairs windows were identical appearance but hung on reversible hinges allowing the windows to be cleaned from inside. Reversible casement windows also provide an excellent means of egress should the need to climb through the window ever arise.
The windows were made with a wide horizontal glazing bar to represent a sash window meeting rail and a narrow vertical bar. The colour is Normandy Gray which blends superbly with the cream render of the house. December light is often very blue which is why the true colour is washed out from the rear window photograph.
