Gable end false door re-fit

The client asked us to re-fit a top false door at gable end. The door was flaky and some boards were rotten.

The solutions we came up was to do it from scratch.


We used mobile tower to get to the top. Mobile towers are really handy in most situations. These are light, extremely mobile, easy to erect and much cheaper than scaffold.


The door is false and not in use but it is a part of the barn, so we made exactly same as original.


Work in progress…


Brand new false door painted and re-fitted.
