The wonderful folks at Mandala Homes asked me to help out with some timber accent details for a home that is being pre-fabricated in Nelson, BC and then shipped and assembled in Hawaii. The cloudlift design cut into the ends of these…
The owners of this new modular home wanted a timber look for their front porch, so they asked me to design and build an accent piece for their porch roof structure. They were really pleased when they saw it go up. It adds a timeless classic element, and the curves cut into the beam and the braces add a softer contrast to the straight lines of the house.
These timber framed accents make use of an elegant curve cut in the beam to artistically frame the entrance to the stairway.
A curved archway is being cut on this beam for one of the timber accents in the remodel we are doing in Nelson, BC. Where walls were removed to give the house a more open feel, the curved archways will still give the sense of an entrance into the living room area.
Curves are to be cut into several timber accents for this remodel, and the layout method was both quick and accurate.
Once the timber was finished, the owners were so pleased with the look that they decided to incorporate it into the kitchen area as an accent piece. The counter was cut to fit around the post, and the top half of it shows above the cabinets.
We had to sand the post in three different stages to get from the rough painted wood to a polished look that could be coated with oil to enhance the beauty of the natural wood.
When demolition happened in this basement before the renovation started, this structural post was exposed. It was rough cut and painted blue.
