A modest 10,000 square foot home in Washington, Georgia using our custom wood 3 1/2″ Tuscan Douglas Fir porch spindles. This homeowner liked our 4×26″ C15 Tuscan Douglas Fir porch spindles but needed a 28″ length. We made these spindles 28″ tall and stretched the turning from 15″ to 18″. Do you think it came out okay?
For those with period homes, the holidays are a chance to use the space for what it was made for: entertaining! A customer with a newly constructed home in Raleigh, NC just sent us feedback on their wood porch rail project. This fine southern home shows our 3 1/2 x 26″ Victorian Porch Spindles in Douglas Fir, 6″ 4-piece Porch Rail System in Port Orford Cedar, and 2×6″ Tongue & Groove Porch Flooring also in Port Orford Cedar. The final touches were just being finished before Christmas and they had over 400 people visit. I’d say it was a success!
This historic home in Madison, Indiana once belonged to Jesse Bright, a prominent politician prior to the Civil War (1861-1865). He served as Lt. Governor, 3 terms as US Senator for Indiana, and other prominent positions during that time.
The current owner writes: “At some point in the 1950s to 1970s the original side porch was enclosed. And when I purchased the house in 2004, it was in a state of collapse. In 2010 I restored the porch, using your all’s spindles because, as a professional historic preservation specialist, I knew them to be authentic. You can see the results. Thank you all so much for making such fine products available.” 5/16/12
This homeowner selected our solid wood 3 1/2 x 26″ Revival Porch Spindles and 6″ Porch Rail System based on the authenticity of these products. The owner of Western Spindle says this balustrade together with the classic large square columns is his favorite setup.
