I'm looking forward to reading about your projects and plans. Is the window refresh part of a bigger renovation of the house?

 

Please let me know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site.

One other option is to clad the face of window frame with timber. This can be done with timber moldings and glued in place after painting or varnishing. Construction adhesive  will hold timber to aluminium.
