Adding Some Detail
These customers were referred to me by some neighbors who we built some cabinets for. They wanted some built-in storage while creating some architectural interest.

    Cabinet Detail
During our first meeting, the customers said they wanted bookcases on either side of the cased opening between the Family Room and Foyer. I suggested building the cases all the way to the ceiling and incorporating a paneled opening with a pediment above. They weren’t sure, but when I came back to them with the drawings and they saw how little the cost difference was, they went for it. When everything was done, they said they were very glad they took my advice. One of my goals is to design my work to look like it was always part of the house, instead of an afterthought. I also built a couple of small cabinets for either side of the fireplace in the Living Room.
