Exposing beams can reveal extraordinary architectural details

Exposing beams of wood, metal, and cement can reveal extraordinary architectural details.
 
While it’s true their original purpose was solely functional, exposed beams have proven their worth beyond utility time and time again. Whether your home has an industrial, rustic, or contemporary feel, they up the drama and demand attention.
 
We are in the midst of putting in a 26′ steel I-Beam to open up the entire 1st floor of this home. The beam will be exposed for a modern look and is part of a pending large renovation that is going to fully take place next year.
 
Exposed beams really are striking looking, regardless if they’re original to a home or newly added.
 
We are also re-doing the flooring to a hickory floor which is also in progress in the attached photos.
