Oak living room

This room started out with a cabinet maker walking off the job because he couldn’t figure out how to do the beams. The beams they had called for were completely wrong for the room so when I was asked to look at the room I redesigned them. The hammer beam trusses I designed suited the rooms feel better than the original straight trusses the architect had called for. After the completion of the trusses I was asked to redesign the balcony, so I created a radiused balcony with coopered oak gothic arches. I also constructed the 3 foot tall solid oak brackets that are under the balcony. Finally I was asked to make a “TV cabinet”/overmantle for the fireplace so I designed and built the cabinet on top of the mantle that is 10 feet tall and 6 feet wide. the gothic arches and spired columns of the over mantle are actually door that hide the flat screen TV and two display spaces.

At first, I thought I was looking at a cathedral. You did a beautiful job.

David, thank you. The funny thing is I don’t do well with heights and the peak of those beams are 22 feet off the floor….

VERY NICE! I love seeing Gothic in non-religious settings! If I only had the funds to do so for myself! Drool…..
