(Mis)adventures of converting a stone barn to a dwelling

Doors , beams and windahs

Pip managed to get some proper bargains for the doors. Firstly the rear we got a reasonable quality hardwood double glazed one and some wooden double glazed tradinorm windows from Leroy Merlin’s, and got 10% discount off the price under a customer loyalty scheme.

Then Pip went one better and snagged this off ebay, for less than a cheap door from the diy chain, including delivery.

I love the iron work on it.


Also on the same delivery from Leroy’s came these. Nice straight beams. Not oak but treated sapain, a varant of pine. They were carefully stacked out of the weather until use.
