Just to confirm from this end. I've conversed with Andy Hill at
CET and we've sorted out the stained glass designs, so he's said
he's confirmed with production control that they have everything
they need for production to go ahead.
So finally, it's all looking good.
I would say I'm a little disappointed that I was (originally)
feeling pressured to sign off on a design that really was
sub-standard and ended up having to take the initiative by talking
to the manufacturers directly to get it sorted out.
The other thing that has had me somewhat intruiged, was that at no
point has anyone actually shown me, or offered to show me, the
design of the frames.
When Trevor first came over, I asked him for, as I've mentioned
previously, 'like for like, as far as possible, for keeping the
character of the house'.
Now the list of window panels all show 'Timber Casement', so am I
to assume that there's only one style for this?...
If so, could you point me in the direction of what they actually
look like please?
If not, then shouldn't someone have discussed this with me?
I would have brought this up earlier, but I've been somewhat out
of action for the last week and a bit.
I've got some cross-section diagrams that Robbie left with me that
show the internal construction, which is all well and good, but
having something I could do a mock-up with would be great.

Further to the previous mail.
I'm more than happy to provide any assistance I can to ensure
that your supplier can provide what has been asked for/agreed.
I'd even be happy for you to 'borrow' the panel that's inside
the porch so that the replacements can be equivalent.
I hope you can understand that for me, this is probably the most
important part of this refurbishment, as it's what
I'm going to have to look at every day
As an engineer, I understand what it takes to reproduce
something to quite specific tolerances and that's what I'm used
to working to - whether that be wood, metal, electronics or any
I do also have friends who make stained glass for a living. So I
have some understanding of the processes involved in the
construction and manufacture. Compared to some of their
commissions, this isn't that difficult a design.
I know I'm asking for something quite specific and really I'm
not trying to be difficult.
However, when Trevor first came over and I explained what I
wanted - 'like for like as far as possible, keeping the
character of the house' - he assured me this would be possible.
I would have thought that as you are 'the biggest and best' (and
were actually my first choice), then we can make everyone happy.

Dear Mr Meacher

stypolite that is near as possible to exsisting and will

Further to my earlier mail
with the reconstructed images, could you also confirm
about the type of obscured glass in the clear panes of
the larger panel(s) please?
These particular ones will be going in my hallway so I'd
like them to be as similar as possible - or if that's
not possible, at least the style that looks like it's
lightly sandblasted so that we can't have outsiders
peering through the windows...
For details, see the "Big Window Outline with
Colours.pdf" in the zip file from the previous email.
