Behold our high quality hardwood half-door.
John Friel (on the left) – well his dad established Friary Carpentry in the seventies at Lough Eske. He specialises in staircases like this gorgeous oak one.
Just for me – John made these traditional strap doors..
And with the help of this fantastic post war piece of kit..
this sash window
Happiness is – a sash window in a stone gable.

Hard, no, impossible to dispute that ‘happiness is a sash window in a stone gable”. And that door is a thing of beauty, as well as practical for keeping the fowl out but letting the light & air in.
Looks super- and great to see the traditional carpentry skills being used. Congratulations
Awesome stuff Louise. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to follow this authentic journey of celebration of our vernacular Irish build heritage. It must be some feeling to get to this point. Happiness is indeed a sash window in a stone gable. 🙂
Hiya Louise, Looking good up there now. When is the house warmer? Karl
Thanks as always to all for your lovely comments – next step is to install a stove and book the fiddle player 🙂
Louise this looks amazing! I was lovely to see you the other week, we were all really touched that you came. I will be following progress with interest. The windoes are indeed a thing of beauty.
