Often is the case that builders simply put the shower head too low for most people. When customers have their homes re-piped they will request the head be moved up. On acrylic tubs this leaves a big, ugly hole. No problem. With modern compounds and a little bit of effort I can make the hole disappear.
I used thick alder to create a mantle to complete a fireplace in a home in Beverly Hills. The clavos on the supports are actually steel balls set in under-sized holes.
The new homeowners were left with an unfinished project from the previous owners. They had a vision of a simple mantle and mirror over their fireplace. I was happy to oblige them. I fabricated this in a few hours from some left-over alder and crown molding.
No questions were asked. Only a solution was provided.
Another solution to a customer’s storage problems.
We provided a way to hang small re-claimed stained glass windows over a kitchen window.
The customer loved this buffet when they saw it in the catalog; but soon realized it would not work in the place they wanted to put it. So we re-designed it and gave them what they wanted.
Last decade builders were all about putting niches in homes. I filled this one with a large cabinet for storage and a small flat screen TV. The center doors swing up and slide over the top of the screen to stay out of the way for viewing.
