$500 gift card goes to Goddard Specialty Construction, LLC
Cable Railing Treehouse
Congratulations to Goddard Specialty Construction!
This is part of the Zac Brown Treehouse which was in the season finale of “Treehouse Masters” in October of 2016. This project presented a very aggressive timeline in which the pace was dictated by TV production. It was a full-time installation by Goddard Specialty Construction, LLC and was completed in seven weeks. Four of the seven weeks included 16 hour days to complete the project. The finished project is a beautiful installation. A cool glow is cast during the evening by LED lights integrated into the railing which consists of 2x2 Aluminum posts (fascia mounted) and 1x3 top rail. The entire project used Ultra-tec Cable Railing hardware. This was a custom house “Space Crab” built for a children's retreat for education about wildlife and the outdoors. “We are proud of our crew and their hard work and equally proud to be associated with Ultra-tec Cable Railing. Without your support we could not have done this. Additional thanks to Patricia at Ultra-tec.”

$250 gift card goes to Leslie Lindemann Interiors
Cable Railing Interior
Congratulations to Leslie Lindemann Interiors.
Leslie Lindemann Interiors was commissioned to update this 1970s waterfront condo in Long Beach. There were several options to replace the original all wood post railing, but the owner loved the idea of cable railing to tie into the beach theme. The beautiful stainless steel cables remind one of the boats out at the docks below the condo. The railing was designed by Leslie Lindemann Interiors with white wood posts and a natural wood cap. The railing was constructed by CSL Construction from San Dimas, California in just a matter of days. CSL found the video tutorial very useful in the construction of the railing. Thanks to Ultra-tech for such quality materials to work with resulting in a functional, yet beautiful design!

$500 gift card goes to Rocky Mountain Creations

From the contractor, Jimmy DeLong of Rocky Mountain Creations:
“The photo was taken at Piney River Ranch outside of Vail Colorado as the sun was rising. It is open only for the summer months with cabins, yurts and glamping tents for rent. It is a hiking, fishing and wedding destination spot at the base of the Gore Range.”
“The cable rail system was installed on the deck, known as "the wedding deck" to replace an old weathered 2x4 rail system at the request of the client for a special event. I was the contractor hired by an automobile event management company to convert the rustic yet picturesque location into a stage.” Congratulations to Rocky Mountain Creations and thank you for choosing Ultra-tec cable railing for your project.
