These are the only photos I have at this time of the finished work in this home.

The columns below are eleven feet tall, and there are eighteen of them inside the residence.

The large shell above the doors is about fifteen feet wide. The doors are designed by and executed in the studio of Isaac Maxwell. Isaac is also the architect who designed and drew the plans for this home. This door is half of the twin set that opens into the kitchen. They are eight feet tall, four feet wide, five inches thick, and hammered from sheet copper and brass.
My dad and I spent several months on this project, doing all the flatwork, as well as the many embellishments throughout the house. Including the shell pictured above, several smaller shells, four fireplaces, several niches, niches inside of niches, eighteen columns, etc.
Above is the fireplace in the master bedroom.
This view looks into the kitchen, and you can almost see the vent hood. Click below, there is a better shot of this, as well as other pictures from throughout the house.
