One of the most unusual projects Parker Joinery have undertaken in recent times was to supply replacement windows for this unique corrugated metal building situated in the picturesque village of Barcombe near Lewes, East Sussex.
The Tin Tabernacle, also known as the Tin Tab, once a local place of worship, presented unusual complications in that special consideration was required to accommodate the junction between the corrugated metal cladding and the intersection with the windows.
We supplied specially made Bereco timber sections for the window reveals and traditional flush casement windows with glazing bars.
Bereco Timber Casement Windows offer excellent weather ratings and high security espagnolette locking system with friction hinges as standard. The customer was delighted with the bar design which matched the original windows, and the overall high quality finish of the windows.
TIN TABERNACLE: IT’S HISTORY AND IT’S FUTURE
The Tin Tabernacle was originally built in circa 1885 and is steeped in history, having previously been used as a chapel, community hall, wedding venue and even a film set. The property is currently used as a meeting place, offices and occasional theatre.
More recently planning permission has been granted for the property to be converted to a single residential dwelling.
The plans that have been granted include an open living space in the main hall with a feature mezzanine office area. A master bedroom with en-suite shower room, further bedrooms, a garden room, family bathroom, laundry room and integral garage with landscaped gardens.
