Stone and Steel
A beautiful setting that did not come together without determination from the client, in what turned into an almost 18 month limestone blasting operation to locate the homesite in the desired orientation on the property.
MUTED COLORS & STAINS. By incorporating neutral tones and stains, we kept the focus on the structure and stone.
Our scope of work was bookended on this particular project with Douglas Fir structural beams used on the porch, interior great room, and patio area. We created a jig to help cut the Chamfer detail found in the posts. Chainsaws, routers, and belt sanders were also utilized in the process. Once the detailed composition was complete, the beams were taken to the site and installed as the structural components of the home.
An in-depth and time consuming process, the massive structural beams that were installed and on-site finished, had been methodically constructed by ABM 2 years prior. A meticulous 5-step technique to achieve the final look of the beams, once installed, took over 3 months to complete. The careful timeline was crucial in achieving the desired final look and texture. That same detail and depth of texture was also mirrored on the stair treads leading too and from the great room.
VARIOUS MATERIALS. Elements of steel were introduced in door frames, hood banding, and even a custom wrapped zinc vanity and linen cabinet in the master bath.
The interior cabinetry, a thoughtful mix of muted paint colors and stains, let the structure and stone do most of the talking. Complimented with beautiful slate on the floors, our scope of work included cabinetry and furniture throughout the home, as well as the fabrication of a custom front door. The sizable entry door required a custom jam, built specifically to allow the radiused door to swing past the projection of the stacked-stone interior façade. Elements of steel were integrated into a number of door frames, hood banding, and even incorporated in a custom-wrapped zinc vanity and a master-bath linen cabinet.
