We used a heart motif as a theme on our house. Little hearts are routed into all of the outside trim. We created hundreds of files and then machined even more pieces. These were all painted up and gazed to form a one of a kind house which we really enjoy.
This same theme extends out to the fence posts as well. The panels were all designed in EnRoute and then cut from 30 lb Precision Board on our MultiCam. Amazingly we went through more than a hundred sheets of 1″ thick board to do the inside and outside of the house.
The forms for the pillars were built from pressure treated 3/4″ thick plywood. The area below the plywood will be extended with welded steel pencil rod. Galvanized lath will be fastened on before we do our hand sculpting of the rocks.
