Ipe with reclaimed timber railing

This was a railing we designed and built in the Park Meadows area of Park City.

We used ipe slats with a narrow gap for low light transmission due to privacy needs, reclaimed trestle wood from the Great Salt Lake railroad trestle (salt trestle) from a company called Trestlewood. They are Utah owned and operated and provide a large inventory of reclaimed timbers. 

Trestlewood has done a great job on their web site also: 

We look forward to doing business with this company in the future. 

Thanks to this client for giving us license to create!

No stain on the post although we may add steel caps down the road. 
These post caps will weather over the winter to a grey patina.

The brackets are custom welded steel left to rust. All galvanized hardware.

This deck was also painted when we started. We sanded and stained it properly for easy maintenance in the future. This is a high performance finish type. 

By the way we are doing a version of this railing on all of the interior railings of the house in December. Pics to follow!
