The Wood Railing crew took a ride down to Atlanta recently to install a small project with some curved railings on a balcony. This is a beautifully rebuilt home on the lake with quite a bit of history. The current owner’s father built a house on the property in the 1950s which had been outgrown and was in need of improvement. The contractor building the new home was just beginning his career as a carpenter and helped build the old house.
Here’s what the homeowner had to say:
People are oohing and ahhing over your handiwork. Thanks so much for sharing your skills with our family.
My family is lucky enough to own this new lakehouse. All of the sub-contractors and craftsmen have incorporated their artistic skills and creativeness into what has turned out to be a most unique dwelling place. We adore our new house. The building process with our fantastic, “attention to every little detail” contractor, Dewane Pugh, has been a delightful experience.
These curved railings match the graceful arc of the balcony in this home. There’s plenty of woodwork with timber rafters and tongue and groove paneling. The home also incorporates wood from the old home, with one room done completely in wormy chestnut paneling from the previous house. There’s also an incredible, real masonry fireplace which are increasingly rare due to the demand for those select few masons with the required education, knowledge and skills.
The view from below captures the arc of the balcony nicely. This simple radius helps to break up the straight lines of the timber and paneling. As do the Mountain Laurel Handrails, which add visual excitement with organic shapes.
