You are gazing at an ipe hardwood fence, matched in beauty and elegance by the frosted glass front entrance gate with brushed nickel hardware. Let me tell you a little about ipe wood: It grows in South America and is just about the densest wood available for building. Ipe is highly fire-resistant, given the same rating as concrete and steel. It is also resistant to decay, termites and fungus.

If you want to add class, elegance, durability and value to your home, use this wood. Our clients are very happy with the deck, fence and gate we built them. We recommended ipe and they love it.

This fence and gate are part of the project that was featured in the October 4th, 2009 San Francisco Chronicle, Home & Garden section. If you visit our website, click on "Press", then click on S.F. Chronicle 2009, you can read the whole thing. Let us know what you think of the article.

Our Master Cabinet Maker Hoa Nguyen built this custom corner cabinet. It fits snugly into the corner and is flanked by two large oval mirrors that the homeowner selected. This was a complete 'gut and remodel' of a very old bathroom that now looks ready for a magazine feature ad.
