Custom Interior Railings for a Loft- Modern Branch Design

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.               Discover more of our recent... read more

Metal Railings for a Rustic Mountain Home

Antietam Iron Works custom forged metal railings for this mountain cabin. A strong look was required rather than scrolling elegance. We used heavier materials and forged a mid line ball into alternating pickets. The project was powder coated oil rubbed bronze to protect it from the elements. The railing created a great contrasting look between these wooden porch posts.                                                                                                                                                                        ... read more

Wrought Iron Step Railing for Business in Historic District of Shepherdstown, WV

We were contacted by the property owner of Bistro 112,  a wonderful Parisian restaurant in the historic district of Shepherdstown, West Virginia.  The entrance to the restaurant had charming stone steps, but due to how steep they were, there was concern about the safety of the patrons.  They were looking to have a simple, stylish step railing created to give support as people entered and exited the building. There were a number of challenges on this project.  The steep grade of the steps, the restaurant doors could swing both in and out, and the existing shutters all needed to be accounted for.  Antietam Iron Works with the towns committee approval installed this hand forged scrolling step railing.  In doing so we took great care to use a no impact water drill to not damage this historic stone step.   Explore our Gallery to see more railings by Antietam Iron Works            ... read more
