It’s been a very big couple of weeks here at the ranch.....getting Matt’s arch nemesis....the exposed steel truss at our front entrance engineered, fabricated and stood up so the we could finish the roof!!! I could truly see his grey hairs multiplying this week🔨 “Be a builder they said, it’ll be fun they said” 🧓🏼😂 But in all seriousness my husband is a legend. I showed him a picture of what I wanted and voila that is what I got. Designed, welded and finished by him 💪🏼 At a whooping 500kgs let me say what a relief to have it DONE ✅ and check out those schmick as welds 😍
It is constructed out of Corten steel so will naturally rust on the exterior as it ages. They say 3-6 months until it is fully coated but will wait and see 🤞🏼The idea behind it was to represent the beams and ceiling joists in an old shearing shed.....not sure about that yet, (maybe you need a very architectural mind to see that??) but whatever it looks like it reminds me of my Dad who is sadly no longer with us. He was a farmer but loved to weld and I remember as a young girl when we bought our farm he completely redesigned and fabricated the interior of our shearing shed including yards, gates and the shearer’s stands that he made steel frames and posts for just like our truss!! So this is for you Dad 👨🏻🦱👨🏻🌾 and I’ll think about you every time I see it 💔 Check the before, during and after photos @seearsy82#beforeandafter#houseprogress#newhouse#customdesign#she#shearingshedhouse#reclaimed#corten#cortensteel#farmhouse#modernindustrial#colorbond#zincalume#progress#architecture #shearingshed #steel#fabrication#myhusbandisthebest#canweld#bui#builderseearsy #builder #building
Scaled model of the kitchen island. I love the stepping of the model. Reminds me of a futurist ziggurat. The actual island will be smooth and clad in bronze. Now to select stone and see the final full size on Friday!
