The Master Bath is Complete

Well it took just over three years but this last weekend we finished the renovation of our house!  Of course we will come up with other upgrades and projects but at this point every room of the house and the outside has been updated.

We wanted to expand the bathroom’s feel without out changing the overall footprint of the space.   There was an used closet that we removed and we converted the door to a pocket door to increase the usable space.   The new shower is built around a 2-curb Kohler pan, marble tile, a glass frameless enclosure, and a ceiling mounted rain shower head.  In keeping with the theme of the rest of the house we used DIY soapstone for the counter top and soapstone tiles over electric heat for the flooring.

The vanity is wall mounted and matching the kitchen has a simplistic shaker inset design.  One unique feature of the vanity is a hidden latch system to operate as a secure child lock on the cabinet door.

The final design feature utilized the live edge red elm slab that I had milled from a tree in the yard when we moved in. (Custom Sawn Lumber from the Yard)  The shelves were thickness planed and then a hidden cleat was installed on the wall to make them appear to float.

Stonecrest Connections Booth

Stonecrest church sustained damage with a small fire on Super Bowl Sunday.  The water from the sprinkler system caused damage to the old welcome booth.  I had the opportunity to design and rebuild a custom connections booth.

The booth was designed to fit into a smaller foot print and increase the flow in the lobby.  The booth is constructed of African Mahogany (Sapele) and build in several sections that were connected together on site.

Shaker Style Cabinets Build in Lancaster PA

It was hard to believe that I would end up building cabinets for a historic row house in Lancaster PA.   I was asked to build a set of custom shaker inset cabinets for a kitchen with 10′ ceilings.  In order to keep the theme consistent and not have duplicate face frames each wall is constructed as a single cabinet.   This project was a challenge but Rebecca liked it enough that I am currently duplicating the basic concepts in our kitchen in NJ.   Here are some pics from the build and install.  I will post final pics once the client completes the finishing touch
