Private Residences: Papier mache tree, Aspen area.

"I hate that post!" Everytime the homeowner came down the stairs into her dining room she said the same thing... "I hate that post!" The problem being it was a load bearing post. Given the eclectic nature of the client's taste and her general sense of fun the solution was obvious. We made the post into a tree.
