This was a small project in Cambridge where we added four cubbies to the top of an existing seat. She will be able to put four baskets in the top part as well as hang jackets in the lower part. She decided to add the trim to the back wall to give it the paneled wall look.
In this project in Beacon Hill Mass we were asked to build a radiator cover without any ventilation in the sides or the front. The appearance of the piece as it sat in the lobby was more important then its functionality. The piece was built and designed to match the existing furniture and molding of the lobby. So far so good on the heaters ability to heat the lobby.
It is very important to isolate the section of the room you are working in to keep dust and paint splatter away from the rest of the room. In this project in Brookline Mass. we had to do a lot of sanding to the plaster on the ceiling creating lots of dust. The plastic wall combined with a shop vac helps minimize the dust.
This what happens when you don’t keep up with the grout and caulking in an older tub. The water slowly dissolved the Sheetrock behind the tile eventually causing the tiles to fall off of the wall. The tiles had to be removed and the Sheetrock replaced. The tiles were re installed and grouted properly.
