To meet the same high standard as the beautiful decor throughout this barn converstion, along with retaining the traditional style of the building. Our project was to manufacture one set of external french doors with raised and fielded panels, spray finished in Farrow and ball “Litchen” externally. Internally “Clay mid” was chosen to add a delicate contrast against the frame colour of Farrow and ball “Clay original”.

The internal set of french doors were designed to allow as much light as possible from the bright and airy dining room with views across the Tyne valley, into the snug living room area. This internal set of doors had a dual colour scheme which consisted of Farrow and ball colours “Stoney ground” to the living room and “Clay original” to the dining area.

A variation of Accoya, Tulip and Sepele were used on this project to give the products the highest level of durability in their environments. Accoya was used to manufacture the external french doors due to its reduced dimensional movement, anti rot properties and long lifespan. Sepele was used for this frame due to its robust and hard wearing performance. Tulip-wood was selected for the internal doors as it holds excellent internal stability. Tulip provides a beautiful, flat base for painting.
