Screened In Porch Remodel

This is a screened in porch I converted into a sun room for a customer in Needham Ma. The first step was to frame for the new windows, then insulate the knee walls and ceiling.

After the windows were installed the drywall is added, the seams and screw holes are filled with joint compound.

Now for the fun part, crown moulding, window casing are installed.

Ceiling, walls, trim are painted, laminate floor and baseboard finish the interior.

Jackie's Built In

This is a built in wall unit I installed in my customer's formal living room.The plan was to build a unit around a french door leading to the dining room and cap the room off with crown.The first step was to remove the baseboard, install and level structural bases on both sides.

I constructed all the individual cases in my shop and installed the face frame on site.Once that was done the crown moulding was installed.

Next comes 20 adjustable shelves , 4 raised panel inset doors with euro hinges for nice clean look.Baseboard , and a custom grille are added , we are ready for the painters.

A Crowning Achievement

Here are a few crown moulding jobs I've done recently.

On this job I installed 4 1/2"crown , made the fluted column and installed the chair rail and finished it in Sherwin Williams white.

This crown is poplar with a very funky profile that my customer special ordered.
More fluted column fun.

This crown was part of a screened in porch that I converted to a sun room.

Crown mania continued

This project was a remodel of a mud room , I built this cabinet for a place to store gloves, hats etc. and hang coats, then tied it together with the crown.

This crown was part of a dining room remodel.

Arnold Family Projects

Here are a few projects I did for WEEI sports radio talk show host Dale Arnold. Dale's wife wanted to fill in some dead space in their kitchen area with some cabinetry to provide additional storge. I built this unit out of red oak to work around the water cooler and house a 17"LCD TV. Behind the bottom two doors are six shelves mounted on Blum drawer glides that pull out to allow easy access to pots , pans and cooking accessories. The stain used was color matched to the existing cabinetry.

This bookcase was built to match a set that they had purchased years ago. I made it from cherry like the originals and sealed it with satin poly

On this project I installed a french door , added casing and rosettes on the living room side and fluted casing, plinth blocks,header and crown band on the foyer side to match the other door openings I trimmed out. I also installed the crown moulding you see above the door.
