Need images of MCM/modernist wrought iron gating...

Hey all, I'm going to be enclosing an entryway, as well as enclose an area of the backyard, with some sort of iron gating - but don't want to settle for the typical vertical bars or "palacial" style that's currently the standard. The house isn't MCM by any means at the moment, but I figured I gotta ...

Re: Could there be a Castle Tour?

I live in SF now, but grew up in La Cresecenta. Can someone clarify that this is different than the castle on Tujunga Canyon Blvd next to the Post Office. If so, Tujunga seems to have its fair share of castles, i.e the modern castle on Apperson around Commerce. There also use to be a huge turret/ch...

Besides, I think that the cats would be able to escape anything , whether it was wood wrought iron. They're pretty agile creatures. Agreed! It's a funny thing, all this, because where I'm currently living we have only a typical single door and screen setup and haven't had a significant jailbreak in...

More good ideas and food for thought - thanks everyone! I'm starting to lean towards the wood idea... maybe swinging door type things that could usually be left open (the bench and potted plants in the entry are getting 86'ed) and closed mainly for loading in groceries or other things that require t...

I know, I know - I truly don't like the idea of wrought iron either; but like I said, I do need to do something there as a 'failsafe' in order to keep the cats indoors. Here's a wider shot - not wide enough but you can see there's room to do something else here: http://www.momentumlink.com/sean/entr...

Hi and welcome! Can't offer too much help but just trying to bump your topic up. I think the space between the two entries is important to think about. It may seem awkward to walk through what one thinks is the entryway, only to become enclosed in another walkway. I think my personal preference wou...

Enclosing entryway - opinions/recommendations? (and hello!)

Hey everyone, Longtime lurker, finally posting. I recently acquired the house I grew up in, located in Tujunga, CA. It was built in 1966 and while definitely not a MCM by any stretch, it did have lots of contextual touches like river rock out front, a nice river rock & slate fireplace, sliding g...
