Port Sulphur Custom Millwork Oculus
The oculus in the attic was a very special item to create and ultimately went without a hitch. Well, almost. When Central City Millworks went to install it, we were surprised to find out that even the tallest man lift we could use was still not tall enough. It is only about 60 feet or so up there, but with the grand scale of the front of the building we could not get the machine close enough. So we had a brainstorming session at our millwork shop in New Orleans and came up with another solution. Instead of installing it from the outside, we were able to install it from the inside of the attic by using a series of custom jigs and clamps to hold it in place while it was fastened with glue and nails.
