Metal Cover

This summer we worked on a beautiful home in Idaho. It was situated on a butte overlooking the most picturesque river. It was a really good project and it kept us very busy. I will hopefully be able to sneak back up there once the floors are finished and snap some photos.

In the bathroom there was this tricky sump pump that was a little difficult to design around. The contractor suggested a big steel sleeve to hide it. We also were able to conceal a remote steam shower unit. This is the unit in progress and again with the first coat of patina.
The finished metal is a deep auburn rust with some lighter marks here and there. It has since been capped in walnut with a bench that fits next to it. It will also have a towel bar wrapping around it. An interesting kill-several-birds-with-one-stone sort of a project.
