Customer salvage ideas

I can’t explain why some people do this …

… but I hope you enjoy looking at what customers have done with salvaged window panels I have rescued and sent to them. Although I believe original leaded lights should be maintained within the original properties I am pleased that they can at least be reused in the following ways.


Li’s patio/sunroom – Oregan, USA (R1018b). Li found these from my 650mm length max page.

“Hi Richard,
Probably 4 years ago I came over and bought some glass from you for our little garden house. I knew I would be a long time sending you pictures I promised.
The roof is a green roof, those 6 pack plugs which the garden centre plants come in, filled with compost, fitted into the roof frame and covered in gravel once planted, in it’s 3rd year. More or less put the roof on and filled the sides afterwards.

Anyway, now finished, a lovely space and a great use for windows.
Best wishes for your continued success and many thanks for providing the raw materials for our ‘Glass House’ great for having coffee in the fresh air on especially on colder days.” Graham – Oxfordshire.

Here’s set R931 which I sent to Tara in Virginia, USA …

… and here’s what she did!

What I like about the above photo is the contrast between new and old. Carla has mounted the window sashes exactly as I sent them – she has not repainted the frames. She also chose an art deco design which I think suits the linear arrangement of everything in the room.

This window was from somewhere in the north of England and now in a rustic Latino setting! Josias’s home in Brasil, State of Minas Gerais. This is why I love dealing in reclaimed glass – selling to someone in the world who appreciates!
