Well that was easy...😂
On-site fabrication has concluded. Our most involved, intricate, and heaviest installation to date.
Back to the shop now for final weld and polish before powder-coat.
1750lbs of cold rolled steel delivered in raw form to site, and all cut, prepped, and fabricated in-situ. Man... I'll be doing the @kobebryant ice bath tonight if you're looking for me.
Big thanks to my guys who put in long days, and big thanks to @mooseheadcontracting 's team who pitched in wherever they could 🤜
THE LOCATION: stunning 16th floor Vancouver penthouse.
THE REQUEST: a custom 10'6"×7'x10' tall pergola structure w/composite @trexcompany deck.
THE CHALLENGES: a very narrow, steep, rooftop access, use of a crane not an option.
Yeah no problem @allyfaith, we'll do that for you...😂
THE PLAN: fabricate, assemble, disassemble structure in the shop, flat-pack and carry all 60 pieces up by hand, reassemble on site.
Our little angel turns 6yrs old today, so you know we had to treat her to an early morning beach run.
It's pretty rad that my neighbours to the south get a day off in celebration of this momentus occasion...😂 Happy 4th as well to my American pals 🇺🇸
What kind of a trip would it be if I didn't stop by to see my pals in Duvall while I was down there!?
A pleasure as always @evil_metalworks & @blend_fabrication. And great to finally meet you in RL too @artisanironco. Have a great 4th tomorrow fellas🇺🇸
Thanks for the 🧢 Jason 👌👌👌
Just a couple of days ago we were down in Seattle checking out our pal @joelsayre8582's exhibition at @petermillerbooks.
The bowl pictured here is nearly 4' in diameter if I'm not mistaken.
If you're down that way, stop by. He's showing for another month, and if you have even the slightest inkling of interest in design or architecture, you'll love the book store too.
Scroll back a couple of posts in my feed and you'll see more of Joel's craftsmanship.
We hit the road to Seattle yesterday morning to visit our pal @joelsayre8582 and check out his exhibition at @petermillerbooks and hang for the night.
Just look at these works of art. Joel does amazing things, carving them out of solid chunks of timber. One day I'll have one 😁
Also, this is by far the book store with coolest books I've ever seen.
...kind of looks like a rendering to me. Agree? It's not though. It's very real. I know because I installed it last week.
Just waiting on the pendant lights to show up and then I'll share final shots of this custom light structure in its completeness.
Nice work on the fabrication and finishing @jgordsthewelder 👊
I really hope that @moniquemmf and @coljfirth dig the base we've whipped up for their heirloom maple burl... Just don't tell them about it yet, I haven't let them know it's almost ready... .
Nice job on the execution of this one @callempeake 👌
My best pals made it official yesterday and I was one of three best men.
An ansolute honour to be a part of this beautiful day between two beautiful humans.
Check me out in a suit!
