Summerville welder battles with labeling himself an artist after making popular home decor | Features

Outside of Baker’s BBQ of Summerville there’s a molded metal pig welcoming customers in the parking lot. 

The piece started off as just an old tossed-out grill that was discovered by the owner. After he reached out to Jason Elam, a local welder and owner of Rocky Steel, it morphed into the metal art sculpture it is now. 

“I like doing fun, different ideas like that,” said Elam, a Summerville native. “I just wing it.”

Elam has been working in welding and ironwork ever since he was a teenager fixing his car in his parents’ garage. Since then, he has grown into an industrial welder working on various buildings and construction projects under the Rocky Steel brand name.

Take a look at a contemporary seven-bedroom Dallas home with a unique curved design

This 14,795-square-foot contemporary home was custom built for owners Darren and Amy Kozelsky. Darren’s name might resonate with country music fans. The home was designed by architect Lionel Morrison.

The home, built in 2007 on nearly two acres in the Hillcrest Estates neighborhood, has seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms and four half-bathrooms. The home was updated recently, including adjustments to the kitchen and living room to create an open floor plan and a fireplace was added.

The unique, curved design of the home envelopes an infinity pool that sits off of a wrap-around back patio. The pool is visible from multiple points in the home, through the large floor-to-ceiling windows on the first and second floors.

Listing agent Amy Detwiler said that, during initial planning meetings with the architect, the owners chose this curved layout over another option because they liked how it worked with the corner lot.

Behind this unusual black exterior lies a stunning modern family NSW home that can withstand CYCLONE

Behind the black panel walls of an unusual beach house on the New South Wales Central Coast lies a breathtaking modern family home that boasts uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean.

Built 10 years ago on Forresters Beach, between Terrigal and Bateau Bay, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is fitted with a games room, home gym, multiple living rooms, a frameless shower and a courtyard.

The architect Matt Thitchener built the property to withstand cyclones if necessary, due to the fact that his parents – who previously owned the house – are structural engineers. 

It is split across three levels and houses decks on each level, alongside a beautiful spacious rooftop and spa.
