Hi there another new poster here. I live in a 1930s house in Drumcondra which originally had beautiful steel framed windows. There is one house left on the street with original frames (will post a photo of them before they too disappear). Sadly our house has had them replaced by some particularly hideous uPVC numbers which we have always hated. You know the kind, with pretend “Georgian look” plastic “glazing bars” stuck in between the two sheets of glass?

Anyway we are about to have major work done on the house and am going to ask our archtect about steel frames – could we import some Crittall windows from the UK I wonder or would this be prohibitively expensive?

So R01027 you are not alone in your love of steel frames!
