The process usually begins with a phone call from a potential client. After describing their wishes we set a time to meet at their home so I can see the existing surroundings and start the design process.Sometimes walls are already blank as in slide 1.
Slide 2This client had an old mantle she wanted to use as a surround for her flat screen TV.Next she wanted bookshelves to flank either side and match the details of the mantle.An initial sketch is drawn onsite and dimensions taken. Next a sketch is created on the computer along with a proposal for the client.
Slide 3Once the proposal is accepted and down payment received the project begins.We start with kiln dried, rough sawn lumber of the chosen species and create a piece of furniture completely finished right here in the shop.
Slide 4When we deliver, installation is quick, usually less than a day, and sometimes only an hour or two. Recording accurate measurements initially and using templates means a precise build in the shop.This means a clean jobsite (often your living room), with no or very little cutting onsite.
Remaining Slides show the continuation of the process. This installation took 1½ days onsite.
