January 25, 2015

An Oriel window is like a bay window but held up by brackets.

I draw out the plan on a piece of plywood. And started with making the sill.

The sides of the frame are solid for two casement windows, in the middle will be a sash window so needs different framing; hollow sides hollow top.

This is one of the side frames.astriddegroot

Here you can see the start of the sash framing. It will be hollow to allow the contra weights going up and down.

Sash frame put together checking it on being square and true before glueing.

Thin divider in each box they prevent the weights bang into each other when sliding the windows up or down.

All the windows fitted.astriddegroot

Hardware fitted, I put the weights on as well to check the sliding of the windows, very smooth.

Start the brackets.

The window will sit on the brackets,  covering the window opening, I also lead a steel cable that starts under the sill runs through the sash boxes comes out on the top and screwed against the wall, to make the firm fit.

The window will sit three storage up a house looking out over Fishguard harbour.
