This is an oceanside multi-level deck we built a couple of years ago.It's constructed of all composite materials to stand up to the harsh environment of the shoreline. We used all stainless steel fasteners and structural components and a stainless steel cable rail system so as not to obstruct the view. The columns used are structural and within their center, contain a steel cable attached to the frame above to hold the deck down in the event of high winds. In the upper corner of the deck a window was removed, and a door added, to provide entry and exit to the kitchen.
Featured Project 2
We recently completed this custom kitchen in Kingston, MA. We worked closely with the customer on the design and came up with a plan that provided a great deal more storage space and efficiency than the previous existing kitchen. The cabinets are solid maple with raised panel doors, drawer fronts and end panels. The finish is not a stain, but a dye. The dye puts color deep into the cells of the wood (as opposed to staining the surface) to create an almost three dimensional effect when you look at the figure of the wood. A glaze was then wiped on to slightly darken the finish to give a subtle hint of aging. This was followed by a hard laquer top coat. Details were routed into the door and drawer edges to pick up and show off the glaze. All other edges were softened with a small radius. All drawers were dovetailed, and various pull-out trays and racks were provided.
This is a series of photos we took while building the office addition onto the workshop. The office addition was built about five years after the original workshop was built. The siding on the workshop had already begun to weather to a nice Cape Cod gray. So we removed the already weathered siding on the rear of the workshop and re-installed it on the front and gable end facades of the new office so that it would look as if the office had always been there. New siding was then installed on the rear of the workshop. It was in November and construction spanned the Thanksgiving weekend. Each photo represents about a days work or less.
'Excellence in Craftsmanship'
This is a log cabin we built in Bretton Woods, NH in 2016. It's a 2 bedroom, 1 bath with a sleeping loft that has a built in queen size bed and sleeping cubbies for the kids. On the interior we installed hand scraped, aged hickory hardwood floors and lighter finished hickory kitchen cabinets. In the loft we made a heavy duty fir ladder and tapered it to simulate the taper of a tree. As a surprise to the owners we inlaid a couple of bears along with bear tracks. To go with the bear theme we hand cut bears out of the hickory flooring to make the heat system floor registers. On the exterior we built a wrap around deck with drawknifed, rustic cedar railings.
