A very custom job for one of our favorite clients. She wanted the space to be vibrant and energetic with room to entertain and be entertained. What she got is a truly one of a kind space: We added a wet bar with built in wine and beer cooler. The floating shelf above is routed out so that the lights fit snug and flush. Beneath the comfort height counter are recessed, dimmable in-cabinet lights. Above the floating shelf is a vintage collector's Budweiser lamp. Flip a switch and watch those Clydesdales trot! The full height backsplash is a stacked stone that matches the fireplace which you can see when the door is open. Our client wanted built in shelves and entertainment center... but the engineered trusses which create the slanted roof restricted traditional design- the walls aren't studs that you can just cut! Each bookshelf, as well as the TV recession was built to fit as snuggly as possible between trusses... though they look like one large installation they were crafted to individually fit in specific places giving the illusion of deliberate recessed bookshelves. And one very cool slot machine fit right in!
Black Butte gut on a budget. Our hands were on everything. Knotty Alder trim, doors and cabinets. Add an upstairs bathroom, remodel the two existing. Downstairs bath gets a roll in shower.
Amazing clients. Out with the drop ceiling (why was this ever a good idea..?), frame out the vaulted line, delete the bizarre wall separating the kitchen from the rest of the world. Rework the space. Lighter, brighter, kitchen.. custom fit! Glass tile, stainless appliances, new flooring, check out that sink!
This was fun! A bit crazy but kept us on our toes. The Departure Bar on the 14th floor of the world famous Nines Hotel in downtown Portland. We had to build this baby in three separate sections and assemble it in place. The twist: we had to do it after the bar closed and before it opened again in the morning. Install started at 4am and we had til 11am to get it assembled, stainless footrest welded in place, wrap embroidered, sinks and registers installed and ready for business! ....Don't even ask how we managed to get the 14' countertop in the elevator....
Various projects from various times: A poorly flashed window leads to Linda's bathroom gut; Sherry's son's basement revival; x3 custom baby gates for Emily; and a beautiful fireplace: mahogany, stone, and raw steel.. Beautiful!!
