Custom Barn wood Outdoor Sofa

Labor day may have come and gone, but it's always summer here in So. Cal.  This summer we constructed one of our biggest outdoor sofas yet for Legaspi Courts.  A client fell in love with a some exterior sofas from a hotel he was staying at and designer Edel Legaspi developed the design to fit his outdoor space.  
 Our job was to bring the vision to fruition by constructing the massive 16 foot frames with material suitable for outdoor use.
Edel's vision was for  the sofas to be made from vintage barn wood and we found some delicious silver gray vintage fencing; however,  the material wasn't going to be structurally sound or thick enough to actually build with.
 To achieve the authentic look and have the giant structures be functional pieces of furniture and hold up to the outdoors, we built them out of  solid redwood using special outdoor glue and then clad the entire exterior with the prime aged lumber.
Once the redwood construction was complete we began the process of cladding the sofas with the vintage barn wood.  
 We finished the new redwood with a special process to give it the similar silvery grey patina.
 Voila!  the perfect marriage of beauty and brawn.
