Glazing adds luxury to Aboyne cottage

ALUMINIUM windows and doors from Sidey have helped transform an Aberdeenshire gardener’s cottage into a five-star holiday home.

The one-bedroom property, in the village of Aboyne, features grey aluminium fixed casement tilt and turn windows, with low-E toughened glass to offer high weather resistance.

At the back, an aluminium residential door with matching coloured sash in grey, was delivered to site. An aluminium open-out bifold door was also manufactured for the lounge area.

Ron Shanks and his wife, Sheila Fraser, of Ron Shanks Development Projects Limited, bought the cottage three years ago and instigated the refurbishment. 

Sheila Fraser said, “When we bought the property, which was a small gardener’s cottage in Aboyne, we knew straight away that we wanted to extend it.

“Our plan was to create a five-star self-catering holiday home which was beautifully furnished and finished to an extremely high standard.”
