Eric and Spencer, the finish carpenters, have been highly versatile contributors. They banged out the obvious jobs like hanging doors, installing the wood ceiling, and finishing stairs. But, they also have been willing to do a lot of the interior steel work, they are installing all the door hardware, and they built all the closet interiors (which I’ll feature in a separate post).
One of the cool details in the house is an 18″ wide bench that essentially runs the length of the house. Here, is the bench in progress, along the section of the great room in front of the fireplace. The wall around the fireplace will be 10 gauge steel panels with exposed fasteners. We’re installing those over landscape fabric, as we did the barnwood and ceiling.
Here’s the bench in the more-or-less finished space.
How did your finish guys cut the metal for the fireplace surround? It looks really clean. The layout must have been a brain bender? Love the look!! Thanks
I measured very carefully and then made a drawing and had the steel fabricator make all those panels in the shop. The finish guys just installed them. They went it without any field cutting. Again, measure carefully!
