A cycling buddy of mine asked me to build a built in to fill the space in an alcove he had in his sun room. The granite top for the base cab is gorgeous and really pops against the white, it also matches the wall color. Flat panel doors with euro hinges and adjustable shelves on the bookcases round out the rest of the unit.
A couple who live right up the road from me reached out for a bedroom remodel. They are expecting their first child and wanted to convert a bedroom into a nursery. The plan was to maximize the space created by the dormer with a window seat/toybox and a bookcase built into the knee wall. Then finish the room with beadboard wainscot, chair rail and new baseboard. I added beadboard to the window seat panels to match the wainscot and painted all the woodwork with Behr White Jasmine in Satin.
After being fed up with piles of stuff in our spare room and not having enough closet space to hide everything, I decided the easiest solution to get organized would be a built in. The bookcases all have adjustable shelves and the base cabs have one adjustable shelf each. This really helped to clean up the room, behind the doors are all the stuff not pleasing to the eye, theres plenty of bookcase room for more books, magazines and pictures.
This is a wainscot project I did last fall. I matched wainscot they already had in their dining room and added it to their foyer and stairway. They asked me back before the holidays to do the painting and this is the finished product. Thanks Debbie and Chris for your buisness.
This is a mudroom built in I just finished for a family in Northboro. I built this in 3 sections in my shop. Its made from birch and poplar and finished in Ben Moore Super White. Thanks Marci and Eric for your buisness hope you enjoy.
About 3 years ago a couple who just moved from Pittsfield to Medway asked me to build a replica of the surround they had in their Pittsfield home. I worked from a picture and built them a copy. They decided to move again and reached out for a second copy and these are pics of what I came up with.
Its been a while since my last post, so I thought an update was due. I've been mainly painting the last couple months. I'm sort of falling into more interior painting jobs, customers who hire me for woodworking will ask if I also paint, and that seems to happen more and more. I guess its one less contractor the homeowner has to deal with so its convienant for them, I get a break from sucking sawdust for awhile and more buisness.... both parties win. The wall unit is an older project that I thought I'd post but never did, all the open shelf space will be filled with adjustable shelves. The wainscot in this living room was part of a large painting job, the chair rail was already in place, I added the shadow boxes and then painted the rest of the room, the kitchen/dining area, foyer, and two bedrooms. The last pic is a small cabinet I made for a stereo receiver/cable box and dvd storage. Thanks for reading.
