Heritage helps create a warm and inviting feeling in a 19th century cottage

Ben has used Oak PSE to create a stunning radiator cover and ledged doors complete the look.

Ben Mortlock works for Tods Defence Lts and owns a beautiful cottage on the Heritage Coast in West Dorset. Built in 1889, the cottage is undergoing a makeover and is scheduled to appear in a well known country life magazine later in the year.

Ben needed a few items, and with a cottage built over a hundred years ago a lot of his products needed to be custom made to suit the unusual dimensions of his property.

The doors were very easy to fit, we hardly had to plane anything off. They look lovely, we’re really pleased with them

Ben first contacted Heritage when he needed some good quality planed Oak timber to complete a custom radiator cover.

Heritage supplied products from our Oak PSE range, produced from a near prime grade of oak. This proved to be perfect for the job and the resulting radiator cabinet looks absolutely fantastic.

The next job for Ben was to replace his old tired doors. He really liked the look of Heritage’s oak ledged doors although initially he wasn’t sure if they would fit in with his budget.

Heritage worked up a quote for Ben who was pleased to find that they were a lot more affordable than he expected.

For Ben’s property all of the door sizes were different, and none of the frames were square. Each door was supplied to a custom size and slightly over to allow Ben to plane the doors to fit.

In the end very little had to be taken off and the doors were both easy to fit and transformed the look of the property.

Ben chose a select rustic grade of oak with the subtle look of the V Groove verticals, finished off with Heritage beeswax hardware. We think the end result looks absolutely stunning and Ben agrees.
