These Basking Ridge homeowners called our team at Monk’s with a unique request.  They wanted to renovate their foyer to create a more open feel.  The homeowners envisioned removing a main wall and installing a railing to create a more gentle flow from the top floor, down the main stair case, and through the basement stairs.

In only three days Monk’s was able to deliver this vision.

After hearing the homeowner’s request our team at Monk’s had to decide whether such a renovation was even feasible.  Concerns about the amount of support that particular wall was providing were discussed.  It was decided that our team at Monk’s could make this renovation work; a large column would replace the wall.

To achieve the finished, polished look these homeowners were striving for all hand rails were sanded and had two coats of satin impervio oil based finish in mink applied.  These dark hand rails give the space a sleek modern look.
