Georgian and Victorian builders didn’t work with standard window sizes, so I have to be ready for all eventualities and deliver a bespoke solution to each and every customer. To be honest, it is this that makes my trade so interesting. Handcrafting sash windows is a rewarding activity in itself. I am lucky enough to do something I love, and to get paid to do it.
It was a beautiful sunny day when we finished off this job in Ealing. I do enjoy working in the sunshine.
Ranlagh Road is full of beautiful victorian ‘mansions’ that have lovely big sash windows. i really enjoy replacing these as the owners are always so interested in the workings and the tradecraft involved in fitting them into their homes.
