Fireplace screens and doors add to the beauty and safety of a hearth. This home owner’s goal was to maintain an open feeling through this gas fireplace. A design was chosen with a natural branch appearance.
Then each element of this wrought iron screen was hammered and a darkening custom oil-rubbed finish was incorporated to give it its light catching aspect.
Antietam Iron Works fire place doors are often filled with heat tolerant glass or metal screen. The Custom Fire place Door project to the left was created with glass. Additionally, below you’ll find fire place doors that were custom made to incorporated metal screen.

These railings provide safety and beauty for a second floor open hallway that overlooks from both sides the foyer and dining rooms of this home. Creating a wonderful open and connected space and allowing light to travel throughout the home. The home owner wanted a railing that would be artistic and yet have a natural feeling for his home in the Pennsylvania mountains. He trusted James Gunnell’s artistic eye and gave him the freedom to build these railings to create the impression of tree branches.

This historic town house on Capitol Hill, in Washington DC required new step railings. The previous railings did not provide adequate safety for the young family with a child that lived there. He was looking for a style in keeping with the modern restorations that had been artfully completed. Antietam Iron Works executed these metal railings. A great element against the exposed brick.
This project was for a newly built modern or contemporary passive home and needed to pass building code inspections. Our client showed us several photos of designs she liked and gave us freedom to create this project. “I’ve seen your work and I trust your artistic eye,” she said. She was looking for the feeling of flowing water and wanted a custom wood handrail to contrast and warm the look overall. A local planning mill created the red oak hand rail to match the homes wood flooring.

Here is a sample of some of our work at a local mountain lake home.
The railings were sandblasted and a clear powder coating finish was applied to display the natural beauty of the steel. Bold geometry was used with natural elements. This tight descending radius created one of our greatest challenges
Hand Forged Iron Bands were used to finish these porch columns. The overlaping detail created the perfect look. We finished the exterior bands with a bronze powder coating
