My clients had a temporary rail in place, and a vision for what they wanted. The first step is showing me the space, and sharing anything you may have done already, such as architectural drawings or Pinterest boards.
I have the ability to show clients exactly what the final product will look like in their space. An iPad Pro is used to sketch out options over a photograph, and one is refined until everybody loves the design. This is usually done during the first meeting, and is included in the free consultation.

Moving forward, a finalized design is prepared that includes dimensions and call outs for fabrication, such as material thickness and finishing plans. Once a contract is signed the building process can begin!
TIG welding is a spark and smoke free welding method that allows me to weld in any environment. Essential structural elements are welded on-site. For this job, balusters were welded to the framing boxes on-site to ensure they would properly fit each hole in the floor.

Detailing involved bending the ornamental scrollwork and prepping the rail for powder-coating. Powder-coating is a thick, high-performance paint that is resistant to chipping, scratching, and other wear. My clients selected a deep red that complimented their existing color scheme.

Final installation is a joyous day. I strive to make my clients as proud of the work as I am. A special thank you to my clients for sharing photographs of their gorgeous home.
