 Architecture is the art  which so disposes and
adorns the edifices raised by man, that the sight of them may contribute to his mental health, power, and pleasure.
 ~ Ruskin

 


 

Lintels, Sills, Jambs
A R C H I T E C T U R A L   D E T A I L S

Lintels are unique from building to building. A craftsman of the turn of the century would take this opportunity to add an element of style and artistic beauty to a structure. These elements defined each structure and the prairie style. They are as varied as the men who carved them and as beautiful as the landscape that inspired them.

Sills often times followed in the style of the lintel and were usually weatherized to help shed water during a storm.

The Jambs are the vertical elements of an opening and will usually be created with the Lintel and Sill. This adds continuity and style to the opening even when the stretchers in the field are of a different material.

We will recreate the lintels, sills, and jambs of the Kansas prairie to fit the dimensions of your design. Please peruse our CATALOG OF HISTORIC DESIGN and share with us your thoughts and ideas.

 

 

A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.
