New Transom

Ever since we ordered the transom from Steve at Wholly Terra we've been excited to have a piece of art that our neighbors and us can enjoy. Steve stopped by again tonight to install the transom.

I love it. All this for around $500 bucks, and that includes the 2.5 to 3 hours of installation. Totally worth it. I promised Steve I'd take more pictures of it in the light, but I got impatient. Expect more pictures showing it up close, during the day and some more at night. Pictures in better light will show all the different textures of glass he used, and all the various colors in the circles.

Also notice the brushed nickel numbers, new black door, and stainless steel chiasso mailbox and our new light. Our facade is looking sexy.

Gorgeous! It looks so good! No longer will I have to guess which door is yours!

I love it and may have to copy off of you guys. Best form of flattery though, right? :)

Looks awesome!! Sexy is right!

Lauren - You should totally do it. Steve will make whatever design you want, but we really liked the transom he did on Eastern Ave so we told him to use it as a guide. He can even incorporate your house numbers into the transom.

That looks amazing. A "transom transformed". I think your house is so happy to have this new look and to be loved again!

Corey said...

Hey Anthony - Were you able to get the discount through Quicken? Hopefully that worked out for you.

Okay, that is GORGEOUS! Maybe we'll have to put a transom in when we redo the front porch!

Niiiiice.

[envy]It must be nice to have a pretty facade... [/envy]

I've got yards of "hoop and spear" chained to my back fence, waiting for me to cut out the front chain link and build a low, stone "foundation wall" to mount it on. Maybe by June. Maybe. After finishing the paint job.

I love it so much! Best joint Christmas gift to eachother, EVER! Can't wait for you to post up-close pictures, because it really is spectacular with all the different textures and colors of the glass.

Just looking at this again and we would love to see more pictures of the new transom, especially in the daylight! Also a windowbox with flowers would look just dandy next to the fine new entrance to your abode.
