LocationHackney, E5, LondonMaterialsAccoya frames and MRMDF panels. Customer arranged final top-coat painting in-situ.Job DetailsThis large set of shutters was made in Accoya, which we recommend, due to the fact it's an engineered wood and doesn't shrink. This is something that's quite important with shutters, because a tiny amount of shrinkage multiplied over a few panels can add up to quite a gap. The combination of Accoya frames and MRMDF for the panels, means you have a very good base for painting and good, solid shutters that should last for many years. This set was designed to reveal the very nice stained glass in the house, even when they were shut. The shutters were built into Accoya frames which were attached to the existing window frames. Finished in Farrow & Ball's 'Railings'. The biggest challenge on this job was dealing with the very wonky house and the fact at least one window was completely out of square and plumb. We are used to dealing with wonky houses though, we're yet to see a truly plumb wall in London's Victorian or Georgian stock!
