This project was completed about 5 years ago (2005). The house it fits in is a monstous 12,000 sq ft.
The wood species was challenging !! (Jotoba) The metalwork was done by others and although their work was refitted a couple of times the end result is strikingly beautiful.
Overall a very rewarding project and well pleasing to the eye .

WOW! I’m amazed. This is really gorgeous, and I love the ironwork. A 12,000 sqft house is a little too big (like 5-10X too much) for me, but holy cow!

Beautiful job!! House is a bit big. The barn we had on the farm when I was growing up was only 4300 sq ft ;-)) It was one of the biggest barns in the area!

Awesome! Would not want to heat and cool the place though.

That house sounds way too big, but the staircase would sell me on it. Beautiful!

Wow. I can’t imagine bending Jotoba like that. And the color… did you use coloring or just clear coat? You did a great job.

In most cases WOOD and IRON go together very well. This kind of work is very nice to see. Thanks for posting.
