MAIN GATE DESIGN #70

Rolling Hills Estates, CA (L.A.)

As the double outdoor gate, there is a center clearance gap, such as might be seen in french doors. We have since discontinued the center astral pictured below in lieu of the more functional bronze gate stop.

It should be noted that our homeowner applied his own finish. Unfortunately that finish appears to be some sort of glossy marine varnish. The limitations of such a finish are discussed under Pre-Finish Options.

MAIN GATE DESIGN #70-6

Single Horizontal Grid Divider
Mill Valley, CA

Main gate design #70-6 as double gates in Ventura, California–where the upper grid has only one horizontal divider, resulting in just two rows of grids instead of the signature three rows. With the exception of the extended lower rail grid, this gate is identical to gate style #20

What this also illustrates is the generally out-of-focus quality of the photos sent to us during the first few years following the release of the first iphones.

ENTRANCEGATE #70-7

On the thirteenth day of the seventeen year cycle of the deafening cicadas, Darlene freaked out. Buggered by bugs–in the fireplace flu, the sugar bowl, between the sheets, in the folds of her rivulet curls. On the thirteenth day, which to Darlene seemed like thirteen years, she makes a run for it, a sprint to the car parked in the drive and a means to somewhere else, anywhere else, children or no children. Husband or no husband. Freedom from the devil cicadas, the constant cacophony of sex-starved prehistorics freed from a seventeen year, sub-grade hibernation that has her running, dashing for the Garden Gate, the new Prowell Gate, the child-proof Gate, the car just feet away, just beyond the locked gate, waiting, waiting to take her from Park Ridge, from the devil cicadas. But the gates are locked! The gates are locked!

MAIN GATE DESIGN #70-8

San Francisco

A look at the residence. The entrance gate shown above is situated on the left side of the house along a narrow easement between the two houses.

As an aside, the house is in the same neighborhood of Laurel Park where Charles once shared a flat in the mid-70’s. Back when it was, well . . . reasonably affordable. A 2-bedroom lower flat with use of a landscaped backyard and basement for $675/month in 1978. Today, in 2015, an equivalent flat on this same street is $4,300/month! Why such an increase. The new wave of those beginning their careers in the Silicone Valley have opted to live in the City rather than the more staid environment of communities in the Silicone Valley an hour south. This well-paid influx has shifted not only the housing balance, but the very culture of the City itself. Landlords are selling their buildings and paying existing tenants –some who have occupied their apartments for 40+ years–upwards of $50,000 to avoid the legal hurdles of something known as the Ellis Act, which prohibits landlords from evicting tenants with the purpose of securing new tenants at the going market rate.

Before creating the dadoes for the lower grid half-laps, a quick tip to insure your miter guide is set at exactly 90-degrees.
Two sets of short wedges set into the miter slots. The tongue of the framing square set against these and the blade against the miter fence.

WOOD GATE #70–PROGRESS

Gate #70-10 above featured irregular stone columns. Gate #70 is commonly supported by masonry or stone columns. Because the jambs cannot mount securely to the face of the stone, they are instead mounted to the block core prior to setting the stone. What we require from you is the distance from the block to the outermost stone, which determines the thickness of the jambs. meanwhile, the stonemason will use a mock, or temporary jamb that allows the construction of the columns to continue while Prowell builds the gate.
