French Chalk Wash

Designed by McAlpine Architects, this home was a beautiful translation of an exquisite interior design; successfully playing off all the natural light provided by the wonderful arched lead paned windows throughout the home.

Full of texture and color, the finish was a labor of love, even incorporating the back dragging of all lumber across a bandsaw blade to create a rough-sawn appearance. Once the material was prepped and the components built, a 6-step finishing treatment was applied, which included glaze, dye stain, chalk paint, and sealer to create the final depth of color.

The planks of the doors and drawer fronts required traditional joinery techniques, such as sliding dovetails, to control the wood movement. Inlaid steel support straps were also utilized to allow the individual boards to move smoothly while maintaining the stability and integrity of the doors.

LARGE ROLLING BARN DOOR.
Due to the weight of the 2 ¾” doors tipping the scales at approximately 275lbs.+ each, we had to anchor a 4-gauge steel channel into the header framing of the wall before mounting the guide system.

ABM  designed and fabricated the large rolling barn door system for this airy, open hallway. Due to the weight of the 2 ¾” doors tipping the scales at approximately 275lbs.+ each, a 4-gauge steel channel was anchored into the header framing of the wall, before custom mounting the guide system.  The design and building of additional metalwork projects followed; large metal planters were designed and created so that the clients’ trees could be rolled from inside, to outside for easy watering from the exterior breezeway.
