One last look at the “faux” beams we recently made for a client!
For those curious... The 2”x10” reclaimed rough sawn lumber this was constructed with came from our lumber division, @salvagedlumber where the client was able to hand pick pieces in our indoor lumberyard.
The craft team then built the wrap, all 16+ feet of it, along with the vertical supports and corner bracing in our shop mocking them up with temporary inserts. Obsessive attention is spent on carefully mitering the corners and thoughtfully aligning lumber for a cohesive, flowing and natural looking build. Featuring all the rough sawn marks, rich old growth grain and 100+ years of weather worn patina, highlighted by a coat of @generalfinishes High Performance finish in “flat” to retain that beautiful natural appearance without a glossy sheen.
Our install team then transported it to the clients home and began work by securing a track to the ceiling, making sure to hit worthy structural supports along the entire length. The team then trimmed beam lengths to fit right there on site, assuring a precision install. Carefully brought in through a window, the team snugged the faux beam wrap to the support track and secured it in place with trim screws sunk into the face, very well hidden making for a clean install.
The results speak for themselves even if the pictures don’t quite do it justice. No one would expect this is a faux beam without deep inspection, and even then it could very well truck most eyes.
