The railing is 1/4" x 1 1/4" flat bar stock steel. It was designed by us and fabricated by Butch's Welding out of Trenton, NJ. The finish is Benjamin Moore Industrial Coating dark bronze.

Mark, I assume you're asking about the exterior?
The shingles are Western Red Cedar. The stain is by California Storm Stains. We used a custom 50/50 mixture of Clear and Timbertone. Each shingle was individually hand-dipped.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here's a library even Frank Lloyd Wright would like. It has an Arts and Crafts feel while still laying claim to 2010. The orange accent wall draws attention to the window and by placing a deeper color at the source of the room's natural light, it keeps this library as bright as possible.
Moving upstairs, we see how to make every inch in a 2,100-square-foot family home count. This library balcony is a cozy spot that maximizes space that is often wasted. The horizontal railings echo the railings used on the exterior balcony. "When my wife said we should paint this hallway this color I thought 'you've got to be kidding me!'" says Bubnowski. "I wanted everything to be white. But she was right; it warms things up and it stands up a lot better to sticky fingerprints from a 6 year old!"
Becky Harris added this to 12 Libraries That Lightened Up
Here's another great library spot that makes terrific use of every square inch of space in this upstairs hallway.See the rest of this home
Becky Harris added this to Staircase Landings Worth a Linger
Upstairs hallways and landings often serve only as a way to get from here to there. Turn this area into a functional space with seating, built-ins, moldings, lighting and an area rug.
