Ecological Repairs

Even joinery and renovation should be considered ecological and sustainable.

A client who I was doing some garden construction for, (a rubble site to a self managing sustainable garden) told me his garage window was rotten and would have to get a new one and get someone to fix it and paint it.

To me this made no sense. Why consume all those resources when it could be repaired and last as long as a new one, or longer? So I told him I could repair it and he would never know it from a new one.

First the rotten sill was taken back to good wood. Accurate use of a chisel work.

Then we construct a new part.
