"We have undertaken a number of subsequent projects on the house, including the loft and cellar conversions, but all involved far more stress and hassle that we had dealing with Paul and Sue from Timber Windows of Horndean – they were an absolute pleasure to deal with. We are just delighted with the result "

Mr. Jellicoe

“Our decision was between square leads or Georgian bars to restore the character of the property.  We spent over two years planning the project, even marking up every old window with painter’s white masking tape to get the exact configuration of the Georgian bars correct.  We realise this was vital as the National Trust have covenant over the outside of our property and have to approve any changes.  Having vetoes some of the other possible choices, they were very happy with the Timber Windows products we selected”.

In 2007, Mr. & Mrs. Jellicoe purchased a character stone built house on the outskirts of Midhurst, West Sussex.  Constructed in the 1970’s, the property had metal windows with large panes to take advantage of the view.  However the new owners felt that the windows did not provide adequate insulation, whilst the modern style actually reduced the character of the property.

All the traditional flush casements windows and French doors were finished in cream with the windows having black monkey tail handles which also helped to keep the character of the house.
