Sidey helps transform gardener’s cottage into luxury five-star hideaway

  • 19 Jul 2019

Sidey, manufacturer, supplier & installer of Innovative Fenestration Solutions, has recently transformed a tiny gardener’s cottage into a five-star holiday highway with its bespoke aluminium glazing.

Ron Shanks and his wife, Sheila Fraser, of Ron Shanks Development Projects Limited, bought the gardener’s cottage three years ago and spent the next few months transforming it into a five-star self-catering cottage for holidaymakers.

The one-bedroomed holiday home, called The Invergarry, lies in the village of Aboyne in Scotland and has been tastefully converted and extended for visiting tourists.

Sidey was chosen to supply grey aluminium fixed casement tilt and turn windows for the project, with low-E toughened glass to offer high weather resistance to the cold.

Sidey also supplied an aluminium residential door, with a matching coloured sash in grey, for the back of the property.

Finally, an aluminium open-out bifold door was manufactured for the property’s lounge area, to integrate the luxury feel of the interior with the newly-installed granite patio and bespoke al-fresco dining area.

Sheila Fraser, director at Ron Shanks Development Projects Limited, said working with Sidey had been “efficient” and “straight-forward”.

Sheila comments on the project: “Our plan was to create a five-star self-catering holiday home which was beautifully furnished and finished to an extremely high standard.

“My business partner, Ron, visited Sidey to talk to the team about what we needed at the property and he was really impressed to discover that the waiting time for local trade customers was not that long. From ordering the products to having them delivered, I think we waited about six weeks.

“As well as aluminium casement tilt and turn windows, we also ordered an aluminium door and aluminium open-out bifold doors, in grey, for the exterior of the property.”
