The Lake at Lissara opened up just in time for the Parade of Homes this past weekend. Check out this article in the Winston-Salem Journal.
I know it’s been quiet over here…
It’s because the wood railing artisans have been working on deck railing plans and crafting a project for the Lodge at The Lake at Lissara. This is going to be an incredible building in just a few short weeks. Ready to install handrail sections are going to be framed by a handrail design that is as unique as woven mountain laurel.
There is a lot of work put in both by myself and the mastermind at Lissara in getting all the details right and ensuring that the finished product will be a perfect match for its creator, Bob Timberlake.
So if you’re curious what 225 linear feet of framed railing sections looks like packed like sardines into a moving truck, here it is. Rental moving trucks are no fun to drive. This one was so loud from road and wind noise that it left my ears ringing. The steering was so bad I could hardly adjust the radio.
But it was well worth it when I got to check out the great work that’s going on at the Lodge. the woodworkers there have built a beautiful timber great room with a huge 12″ x 22″ yellow pine beam as the main ridge; it weighed 3000 pounds. The decking is cypress and the siding is of poplar bark. This is the view from across the lake that is more than a half mile long. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
