After 2 years of helping people to source windows I am treating myself. These were delivered yesterday to replace my landing and bathroom windows. Hardwood again. Three years ago I had the upstairs front windows changed in the same way. I have waited 7 years for this.

The original landing toplight panels are having their edges releaded and for the bathroom window I have commissioned for this old panel to be completely remade with opaque glass to replace the clear. I saved this panel for myself from a set of about 15 which sold like hot cakes. Acquired from a house in Liverpool. Final photos will not be ready for a long time as my usual perfection to paintwork will be applied!

Above diamond photo is the blue hammered glass which is rare and of course no longer made. Fingers crossed it will not break – this is always a risk when taking old panels apart.
