This is a great book case we did for a client down in Dorchester Mass. With a few modifications to her design to compensate for a very unlevel floor we were able to build this unit without it making the room look smaller. The open shelving was designed specifically to hold her vast record collection. A great piece for a great room.
Here is a picture of a custom closet we built for a client in Beacon Hill. After building the closet the owner of the unit decided to have a custom unit built for the inside as well!
We regularly build closets and closet cabinets and provide closet carpentry solutions whether custom, external or built-in. Custom closets add functionality and beauty to a room and provide sensible storage for seasonal clothing and holiday items.
Our emphasis is to reduce clutter so that your living and working environment is less stressful. We always take into account your individual taste and personal needs in designing solutions.
Our custom cabinets and trim are always made of the best natural wood to meet your budget; we never use particleboard or other solutions that don’t make long-term sense.
This was an entertainment unit we built ten years ago. The client wants to go to a larger size in the same unit. We will have to cut away the center sections to allow for the larger TV.
In order to build a piece clients will appreciate, it takes years of experience in building hundreds of custom items – bookshelves, window seats, entertainment center and the like. Combining advanced carpentry skills, an ability to accurately follow design guidelines and being familiar with construction techniques and materials is essential to successfully carrying out a project. There are very specific techniques for building custom bookcases that one only learns through experience. In the project below, we are re-purposing a custom built piece and it takes great care to remove the area that is no longer wanted and to replace it to meet new needs.
Making sure that a custom piece fits a room’s current style is essential, for example, and a bit challenging but can be carried out with attention to detail and a knowledge of styles. For example, in Boston, there are many older homes and being familiar with styles helps one suggest a wide range of possibilities about what would work in a given situation. For example, creating an arch detail in a new bookshelf that mirrors a slightly arched doorway nearby or matching trim to nearby windows in a harmonious way.
