This client added a garage apartment with second flooraccess from the rear. In addition to a large stair run to gain access to the new apartment, they also needed a small stair run to create a path from an existing patio to the rear of the addition. The rails were tricky to source as we needed to match the existing pickets and newels.
We added a gate to the top of the lower stair to ensure the family pets were safe and where they belong.
Some long iron is needed for structural integrity and strength and some steel is for aesthetic. On this project, it was both. The homeowner is the designer and wanted to expose some of the structural elements to incorporate them into the design. This was not without challenges as we had to crane in literally thousands of pounds of ibeam, under a soffit, and through an exact perforation in the wall at one end in order to set the beams atop their posts.
Did I mention this was all I the rain,
The results were fantastic though. Plumb, Square, Level, Perfect.
This work is for a client who is modernizing a very nice mid-century property in an effort to make-safe some of the original work and bring everything to code, while complimenting the architecture.
We (at the clients request) added the steel sub-framed ipe deck rather than replace the window basket on this portion because this is a sliding door.
This mailbox was made to match existing architectural elements of the home. It has a locking box and large package cubby in the rear.
we made this custom steel window grid on an emergency call from one of our custom home builder clients. The house was not “dried in” and the rain in our area has been truly epic. To compound the problem, the home was restricted to using wood framed windows. The builder had ordered six large windows to create this window wall but needed a grid strong enough to hold the weight. Steel was the answer.
A popular local restaurant needed a cover on this window, which had been “wrapped” with an advert. The wrap was taking heavy damage at the foot level as there were frequently tables and chairs in moved about in the lower portion of the space.
Our answer was a custom steel wainscot with angle iron bracing. It not only covered the damage and protected the window surface behind, but also complimented the existing steel architecture.
