Expose Beam Ceiling - Part of the New Home
Go behind-the-scenes of a new home's construction.
Don Dowling, a customer from Marblehead, MA was building a new home featuring an exposed beams ceiling made with our products. He sent us these pictures to give us a peek behind the scenes of the work in progress. They're a little different from what we normally share, but we're really excited for you to see them.
Don's project was to add exposed beams to the vaulted ceilings of his beautiful new home - right in the early construction stages. So the pictures he sent us actually show the beams being installed while the paint and spackle is still wet; and they really show what a dramatic transformation they make.
Don's choice of using faux beams was both practical and aesthetic. In the before pictures, you can see a massive steel beam running across the apex of the ceiling. Don wanted to cover that up - and our large-sized Custom Heritage beam in a Java finish slotted right over the steel beam and hid it instantly.
But then Don took it a step further, carefully positioning additional beams to extend out of that central beam. This layout gives the impression of an authentic beam supported ceiling.
It's the sort of project we love, because it shows both thoughtfulness and purpose. These behind-the-scenes photos show the dramatic contrast in 'before' and 'after' and we're excited to share them; but we'll also be sure to get photos once the home is finished and moved-into. Then you'll really see how seamless and vividly realistic our beams are when they're part of a real home.
