Let's start back at the fabulous Moulin de Latreille in Calès, where we have worked before. A 13th century watermill beautifully placed on the river Ouysse. A homage to contemporary style, we were pleased to be invited to complete the extensive renovations that had taken place to the outdoor space by fitting another set of curving railings on the terrace.
More images below. Remember the lovely summer? What a great place to spend it! What great railings to keep you safe!
Then an interesting project to tackle. To harmoniously fit some decorative metal panels and gate purchased second hand by customers into top-of-small-terrace balustrade and gate panel. The handrails were specially made for the project as were the 'frames' for carrying the metal panels.
Then, out of the blue and great little project!! A sign for a café/bar that opened at the beginning of September 2017 in a small village north of Périgueux in the Dordogne. Guess what they have called the café/bar?
Then a tiny break from working for customers to create something REALLY interesting and useful! A kiln for making our own charcoal. Charcoal, useful not just in the barbecue but also for firing the forge. Created with a great re-use of materials we had lying about....and EXTREMELY successful. We have a good stock of fabulous charcoal now. The kiln has gone through several modifications to make the burn more efficient and the images below are of version 1. Version 2 has more insulation.
Next to a place near Montaigu de Quercy where the owners are renovating an old 'tabagie' or smoking den/smoke house. They wanted railings and handrail to the mezzanine floor and on down the steps.
Our most recent installation a pedestrian gate plus a set of double gates with a one third/two thirds opening arrangement.
