A recent home renovation project completed by Craig-Wilkinson, Inc and wood products supplied by Albany Woodworks has the quintessential southern elements including lots of custom cypress pieces. Located in the heart of the Gulf Coast near Jackson, Mississippi, one home owner designed a gorgeous custom home filled with natural wood from heart pine to oak to cypress.
Walking up to this Mississippi residence, you can see the eye for detail that is carried out throughout the entire project. A custom cypress French style door surrounded by old pine beams really give the grand entrance feel to the home. The old southern feel is added with the wrought iron lantern and wall sconces.
The wow factor continues on the other side of the door! The entrance hall shows the beautiful natural light from the custom cypress doors and transom. Complete with hardwood floors, cypress ceiling paneling and a custom cypress butler pantry. Truly a display of the different ways antique cypress can shine.
Dining in Style
If you thought natural wood was the focus in the entry way, the homeowner really kicked it up a notch in the dining room. Cypress graces the walls and ceiling as beaded paneling paired with exposed beams. In case you were worried this much natural wood would make for a dark room, fear not! Plenty of windows allow for loads of natural light to show off the true beauty of the cypress.
No home would be complete with out a cozy corner to tuck away with a good book and a beverage (maybe an adult one!). The homeowners created the perfect reading nook next to cypress built in book cases and cypress wall and ceiling paneling.
Custom Cypress Goes with Everything
The homeowner decided to keep the cypress theme from the rest of the house. However, they switched it up a little between the bathrooms in the house. The first one has a more rustic feel with barnwood oak flooring and a custom cypress bathroom vanity. The second bathroom maintains the more traditional feel of the rest of the house with heart pine floors and a lighter custom cypress vanity with a farmhouse design.
