We recently completed this wonderful project for a newly relocated couple. The story they shared was they had finally achieved a sense of perfection at the home in another area of the country. They had everything exactly as they wanted with classic elegance as well as comfort. Of course the couple was relocated to Severna Park, and they knew that they would be starting the process of customization all over again.
They found a comfortable newer home in the area, and were pleased with the general layout, and neighborhood. The Pizazz was lacking though, enter Jim Fernen & Vertex Carpentry. With nothing but photos & descriptions of their old, beloved home they challenged Vertex to recreate the elegance, and customized functionality they desired.
Jim created an overall plan as well as several specific custom built pieces that eventually had the couple absolutely Wow’d. His crew was especially careful to preserve what they loved about the new home. As always Vertex kept the working areas clean and protected as they transformed their way through the project. In some ways the retrofit of these classic trims was more challenging than it would have been if the house was initially designed with them in mind.
The finished custom carpentry has added a much higher level of formality and elegance to this suburban Maryland home. If you are ready to create your dream home, either by adding to, renovating, or starting from scratch, Jim Fernen & Vertex Carpentry can get you there.
Most stairwells are made with basic upgrades and classic elements. This stair carriage was site built with 2×12 stringers and maple treads. All of the components were glued and screwed together. No stair squeaks here and we built this 20 years ago. The maple handrail, newels and pilaster newels are all custom fabricated and installed. The ball cap for the newels and the handrail brackets are stock items. Notice there are no balusters here. Instead, we used low budget drywall kneewalls, cutting expenses where we could, while still achieving a vintage look
