Mr and Mrs Fraser – Conservatories
About 30 miles east of Edinburgh, Dunbar is a town on the North Sea coast of East Lothian. Dunbar is well-known for its high sunshine record, rocky coastline and charming countryside.
The town and surrounding area has lots of interesting features. For example, for those with an interest in history; Dunbar was home to one of the most important Scottish Fortresses in the Middle Ages. Its ruined castle, which still stands guard over the town’s twinned harbours, is steeped in history. For those with an interest in the outdoors; Dunbar also boasts the John Muir Country Park; a nature reserve supporting a wide range of habitats, birds and plants.
As previous customers, Mr and Mrs Fraser knew how CR Smith could transform a home. But this time round it was an altogether more complex job.
“We knew it was a peculiar shape but the team really helped us make the right decisions for the limited space,” explained Mrs Fraser.
We had a CR Smith conservatory in our last home, it was our living room so we knew we used it all year round.
A gable front design ideally suited the older style of property. With its traditional look and gabled roof, it perfectly fitted the restricted space. Another feature is the wooden diagonal panelling at the end wall, an idea we came up with to cover some unsightly pipes, turning it from an eyesore to an eye opener.
The Gable Front is based on a square or rectangular shape with straight lines, and a roof where each side rises to the centre. The front of the conservatory rises to an apex and the pitch can be aligned with the roof of your house to create a truly harmonious effect. You can customise the front with leading, Georgian bars or a stained glass design to suit your home’s exterior.
