Swell boxes and shutters


Recommended Posts

Swell boxes: opinions, experiences and any factual information please. In particular,

a) the real or apparent effect of the Hill style box (cottage roof or Dog Kennel) in contrast to a large rectangular box,

b) construction - mainly the substance and interior - painted, lined with paper, reflective paint, plain wood etc.,

c) Number of shutters in proportion to the frontage and thickness thereof,

d) How far they should open and in which direction ie an organ on the north side - should they open eastwards, westwards, upwards or downwards, and how much difference does that make?
