Working with a metal fabricator I designed and installed this custom front to showcase the arched fireplace.
The exterior doors of this lake house are made up of 2×6 tongue and groove boards bolted together. I was able to recreate the look with custom-ordered lumber to craft this sliding barn door for the master bedroom.
The hardware was custom ordered, hand made from a source in Utah.
After a particularly bad storm ripped the dock off its lakeside deck, I rebuilt it better and stronger than the original.
I replaced the original black iron railings with white composite material. The size and “pop” of white really set the stage for a beautiful entrance.
The brick patio of this home got torturously hot in the summer. I recommended and installed a triangular sun shade.
Rarely did guests arrive by the front door, so an attractive backyard entrance was important. It started with a bluestone walkway which lead to a mahogany deck, tiered to accommodate a built-in hot tub, grill area, and a large octagonal dining area, all cascading down to the lawn without the need for confining railings.
Half of this extended kitchen sat over unheated crawl space, so I needed a solution to keep the new tile floor as warm as the half that sat over heated basement. Electric mats were the perfect solution as they were thermostatically adjustable and had minimal impact on floor height.
The lane had only 3 homes on it. There was no signage as it was a private lane, and the mailboxes weren’t in numerical order. So, I designed and built this all-inclusive sign post to identify the lane and incorporate each resident’s mailbox.
After clearing some overgrowth, I found a wall—unfortunately it was cement block—so I covered it with a combination of manufactured and natural stone, for a more elegant look.
This cabinet combined a message center which included a magnetic surface with a chalkboard finish. The spice storage was a perfect fit for the wall adjacent the cooking prep area. Additionally, it had a display area for collectibles.
