Case Study: English Period Door & Porch

We were at the NEC Home Building & Renovating Show in 2019 and was approached by a couple who were browsing around and looking for some inspiration. The couple were looking to replace their old oak porch and front door on their late 16th century brick cottage with a hand-built door made out of English Oak.

The new hand made door and porch was crafted from new green Oak. The small door was replaced with a 3 cross boarded door and a glass squint opening and wooden door panel at the back. The customer requested that they would like the new porch to be decorated with pears, leaves and branches. These were all hand carved in to the frame and side screens.

A local artist painted pear trees on to the glass used in the side windows making a stunning transformation to the cottage.
