These might look like oversized wagon wheels—but if you look more closely, you will see that they are really mortise and tendon mill wheels, built to exact spec replication. These mill wheels are also the base of an intricate and sophisticated lighting feature, framed in a round dining room.

Big details like these mill wheels add the ah-ha moment to a luxury custom home. Not only do they start a conversation, but they are one-of-a-kind. Ideas like these are what you are certain to get when building with me, Jess Alway.

This home was built in Pronghorn, located in Bend, Oregon.
