First window goes in our design n build project

What an exciting day. All our windows arrived yesterday. They were so well wrapped it was tricky to see exactly what we had but from the small area I could get too they looked beautiful. Today we have begun to unwrap them and I’m not disappointed: they are beautiful. And the window latches and stays are just what I had intended. It’s a tricky business getting these details right but this is what I believe makes the difference in a design and build project. I want the new build to have a contemporary look but I want the fabric of the building to look aged. For me it is this meshing of two different styles which will give the new build a feeling of permanence and history.

I was so excited when the first window went it: good job the camera wasn’t on me, I was grinning like a Cheshire cat!

 As the builder exclaimed about the first window: ‘it fits like a glove’ let’s hope the rest are as easy!
