Flyte so Fancy Build The Largest Pop-Hole Door Ever

Recently, upon being asked, the hard working chaps in the workshop set to and built for the shop an absolutely gorgeous Welsh Dresser that is now in place and looking marvellous (see our previous Blog entry to read all about this talented bunch of Dorset craftsmen).

However, never content to rest ankle deep in sawdust, the workshop, under the aegis of Boss Phill started their final project for our shop, well for the time being anyhow. You see the front of our shop had some lovely large doors, but when they were open it was incredibly cold in the shop. There are only so many layers and hats I can wear before it becomes impossible to lift even the smallest of poultry feeders off the shelf.

So, the workshop decided to build a doorway and as the Flyte so Fancy workshop don't do things by half, as you would expect it looks fantastic. Built from the same Scandinavian Redwood that all of our poultry houses are made from, below are some photos of the door being installed into the shop.

And the Door Frame Fits!
The same care and attention that goes into making all of our hen houses, and upon which are reputation is founded, also went into the making of this door frame. Millimeter precision, the best quality materials and the desire to do a job properly the first time around, mean that the shop on cold and windy days is a lot more hospitable.
