Lovely Customer, lovely house!!

Posted 17/03/2013 - by Charlotte Clemons in Blog, Projects, Testimonials

I have just been searching through some old files when I came across this testimonial from a loyal customer :

“We have been really pleased with the work Hortus Ligneous have carried out for us, which has included both internal and external joinery. From fitted shelves and units to large oak garage doors and a hardwood front door .  The quality of workmanship has been superb, with attention to detail and good communication throughout.

A good professional company who have produced results exactly how we envisaged them.”

Mr & Mrs  Winder, Leicestershire

Memories of this family home come flooding back.  I love this house; from the lovely family that lives within it ( including the scruffy labradoodle that guards it) to the wonderful farrow and ball colours used on it! ! It’s an Ironstone house in the heart of a beautiful hamlet near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire and it boasts fabulous views through period sash windows and a mixture of traditional fixtures together with some modern finishes.  Its a warm home, with a real heart!

This family have great taste and I love the products that we manufactured for them.  The pair of Oak garage doors make a beautiful feature of the separate garage and help finish of the garden nicely.  They provide security and privacy for what goes on within it and they have aged beautifully, silvering over time.     The front door offers a secure yet attractive entrance into a cosy, ironstone porch.  It was manufactured from Sapele which can be used for numerous products ie. solid wood doors, door frames, conservatories and counter tops.  This particular door was finished with some ‘top notch’ brass ironmongery and a lovely farrow and ball grey-green colour.  I am sure that you agree it looks ‘the part’!
