Front Door Screen

Liljestrand board member Brian Lam recently rebuilt the entry koshi-do. The original latticed redwood, glued and nailed together, was falling apart. Brian used hinoki wood, power tools to rough out the joinery, followed by hand-tool finishing. While Brian worked on the wood, John Reyno of Hawaii Modern and architect Craig Steely installed the new brass screen. They were able to salvage and reuse the original redwood frame. The finished screen is stunning! Thank you Brian! And thank you John and Craig for the expert assist! 



That’s the most beautiful and well-preserved house I’ve ever been to. Thank you so much!
