Project: Self Build Bungalow in County Wicklow, Ireland
P C Henderson’s Sienna sliding door system has recently been specified for a stunning self-build project in the beautiful countryside of Aughrim, Co. Wicklow.
Looking to build their dream family home, Fáinche and Donnchadh Murphy were delighted when they came across the perfect site situated in the Co. Wicklow countryside surrounded by stunning mountain views.
Planning the design of the 3 bed bungalow themselves, the couple’s main goal was to create a large open plan living area for the family to enjoy. To ensure flexibility of living, the couple opted for double glazed sliding doors to separate the living area from the bedroom block – vaulted ceilings were also included in the design to enhance the space even further.
Fáinche Murphy commented, “Our aim was to maximise floor space in the living area whilst having the flexibility to create open spaces during the day and then close the doors off on an evening to enjoy a cosier environment. Sliding doors seemed the perfect solution especially with the added benefit of saving floor space in comparison to a swing door”.
P C Henderson’s Sienna sliding door system was identified as the best solution for the project. Designed with a stainless steel bar track and exposed top mounted hangers, Sienna offers an elegant and stylish system.
“We required a sliding door system which followed the same barn-style décor scheme we had used throughout the rest of the property - when we mentioned this to our builder, he was quick to mention P C Henderson. The Sienna system perfectly complements the other stainless steel features in our home and the doors glide open and closed with very little effort. We’re delighted with the flexibility that the system has brought to our home”, continued Fáinche.
Sienna caters for wooden and glass doors weighing up to 120kg. Available in a range of track lengths, the system caters for both single and biparting door applications.
