What Houzz contributors are saying:

Exposed connectors are surface mounted to the posts and beams and are visually apparent. Traditionally individually forged by ironworkers and smiths, many such connectors are now mass produced and readily available. (In this sketch,the braces have been removed, as the exposed connectors provide the visual interest, and braces might well be structurally unnecessary.)I'd advise anyone considering exposed connectors to look into having them custom fabricated. These pieces are great visual elements that can really tell your story, so you might not want to rely solely on a generic piece.
