—custom cedar wrapped poles—

These custom built cedar wrapped columns are simple enough in design but we pride ourselves on good communication and ultimately this is what made this job cruise.  


It's all in the details and it is amazing how the eye knows when three more inches plus or minus is necessary.  Case in point, the detail work at the top of these columns were initially just a bit too shallow (see last image in the gallery below) and keen eyes caught it.  Sometimes what "we" want can't be fully determined until it has been rendered in real life at which point adjustments can be tweaked.  Hence where solid communication comes into play and we have learned that is ultimately where success lies, in addition to solid artisan construction.

With so many ways to communicate these days, be it in person, by phone, photos, emails and text, there is no reason communication should faulter, not if everyone is doing their job.  However, determining ahead of time the most effective ways to communicate between all parties based on what technology is most comfortable is essential because a lot can be lost with so many options.  We double down on the communicating of communication, years of project management has taught us this.
