"Period Features: Timber Fretwork"
Looking for inspiration on period timber details? Well, Houzz have included House of Origin's House 2067 in an article about timber fretwork, which is quite an honour as every timber item shown below was lovingly removed, restored and replaced, so as to maintain the home's original character, albeit in a vastly improved configuration.
The timber grille featured on Houzz was originally over the hall 90° perpendicular to it's present location. We delicately removed the timber at the beginning of the project, stored it on site, sanded it back and repositioned it so as to align with it's twin, which hangs over the entry hall.
Not only were we able to retain the timber, character and history of the home, but we were able to use this piece to enhance the hall/dining area in a new way that perfectly married in with the other restored timbers in the entry hall.
We are really pleased to be featured in this article, so jump over and have a read here.
