Carriage House

The complete renovation of this turn of the century Carriage House preserved the integrity of the original scale and age of the structure, while enhancing its livability. Every surface was thoughtfully preserved, replaced or reinvented throughout. Landscaping was added to connect the home comfortably to its grounds. Furniture and furnishings were selected to work in harmony with the architecture and to create a timeless and gracious place to call home.

Thanks for your question! The railing was custom made by a company that is no longer in business, however it could probably be recreated by any iron/metal fabrication company.

SKETCHES OF BEAUTIFUL IRON GATES
Beauty full combination of round bar and wood... Out of code for Californians, if a mayor remodeling is involved .

How to make my closet bigger? - My closet is extremely small and it's under the stairs so it has no space

That's a really tough space for a clothing closet. If you can't expand we would suggest some simple organizational shelving that might allow you to neatly store even more belonging then just a rod and shelf.

Thanks for your question Ayesha! We would skip the runner on the first two stairs and landing and start it after that.

Thanks for the follow up question Bhuwan Ghimire. The newel post at the bottom is roughly 6-1/2" and the one higher up is roughly 5-1/2".

Thanks for your interest, but these are the only photos we have of the stair case and railing. The front view of the newel is the same as the side view.

Thanks for your inquiry. The materials for the newels is cherry. The size of the smaller newel is 5"x5" and the larger newel is 7"x7". Hope that helps.

Here in Texas I believe railings cannot have an opening larger than 4". It's certainly lovely!

Thanks for the question. At the time this railing was constructed it was compliant with requisite sphere according to the Mass Code.

It appears that no, it would not comply with the 2009 International Residential Code that Alabama uses. It looks like it fails at the 4”diam ball pass max opening test and maybe the 6" inch ball at the riser tread triangle.
