Description: Ithaca Style cable railing.
This contemporary log cabin located in Republic, Washington, has some incredible pine tree mountain views. The minimalist-style octagon house features nature-inspired design elements, such as a timber frame and a green garage door that blends in beautifully with the natural surroundings. The clients requested new deck railing that would complement the modern rustic architecture style and highlight the lush forest views. They chose the Ithaca Style cable railing with custom green powder-coated steel posts and wood top rail matching the home’s green accents and timber frame. The result is a modern design that is a seamless addition to the original architecture, and a flawless marriage of form, function and design. The family can entertain safely in their outdoor space with a picturesque view of the mountains and passing wildlife. Our Ithaca Style cable railing can be spotted by its clean lines, barely-there cable spacers, and ultra-thin intermediate posts as narrow as 0.5 inches wide. These features make it one of the best minimalist deck railing options for homes like this one with stunning views. The steel posts were powder-coated the perfect forest green, matching the home’s green garage door, roof, and of course, the surrounding pine tree woodlands. With the installation of the Ithaca Style cable railing, we successfully created a safe and beautiful contemporary deck where friends and family can breathe in the fresh mountain air and enjoy the great outdoors.
