Bamboo, that looks awesome!

I am doing the finish on a house gutted by fire: trim, flooring, tile, stair rail, cabinets, & doors, plus running the electrical, plumbing, carpet, and granite subs. It's 1 1/4 hour drive each way straight down the Front Range, and I am working alone at a busy pace; I like the break from working in the shop.

Hope you don't have any leaks, Edge.

Talk about a rude awakening.

I got some clients in the middle of the night once.
Luckily, they thought it was funny.

Nice hat.

I was taking a few pics of my house to show some details to a client and took one of this custom climber's stair riser. Gotta find something to do with those old #1 rigid stem friends...

thanks edge--that heat in the bath slab and the radiant we installed under the deck has turned out to be very economical to run-
-the whole project took about 7 months to build --decks/main floor/full basement[insulated and finished]8000 sq ft
with a sprinkler system [real ugly!!]--sleeps 48

--everyone notices wood floors-its nice work! if your body can take it!

So I just got a call from an old client back in New Hampshire who told me about an article in the last issue of NH Homes.

http://www.nhhomemagazine.com/January-February-2014/A-perfect-and-functional-makeover-for-a-family/

I did the work on this room several years ago, and was personally responsible for 100% of the wood crafting from lumber selection, design, construction, finishing, and installation. This included flooring, wall panels, built-in cabinets & window seating, full bar, stair rail, and mouldings that I ran myself from knives I had custom designed and ordered. Even the mahogany columns on the bar were coopered and turned by me.

The last room referenced in the article, the family room, was finished the Fall before I left NH. It had raised wall panels, trim, a fireplace surrounded by built-in bookcases, a TV frame, and bench seating. Distressed birch with aniline dye & lacquer.

Thanks, this just in.

I had no idea that the house was going to be in the magazine. Funny story, but in the article they mention seeing a similar room in NH Home that inspired them. I did that room also, and if was magnificent, perhaps the pinnacle of my craft to date. I heard from the interior designer that the couple got divorced a few years later and sold the house, and the new owners had the entire room gutted and scrapped. C'est la vie.

Prior to leaving NH I was getting pretty disgusted working for the high end consumers and their excesses and wastefulness. The problem is they have the best jobs in terms of design, materials, and taking things through to full potential. Those are the jobs where I separate myself from the bulk of the field.

Right now I am doing the flooring, tile, stair rail, prefab kitchen cabinets, doors, trim, and running the subcontractors on a house that was gutted by fire, belonging to a single mom of two young boys. It's fast, honest work, but the stock doors, trim, and cabinets are complete crap. I find myself doing a lot of beefing up materials and construction to try and make her investment last as long as possible.

I am meeting some people in a couple hours to discuss a coffee table design. I also have a bed and nightstand to deliver to Sacramento once I spray on the finish, but it's a 20 hour, 1000 mile drive each way, so I'm trying to plan for a few days in Yosemite after delivery. Anyone want to get in a route mid April?

hey there say, edge... wow, what a GREAT 'have a good day' blessing i just got, stopping in here to see this...

i always enjoy this thread...

makes the day feel great to see what creativity folks have and use...

as to the room --wow... too wonderful for words...
hard to believe, sadly, that someone would (later) purchase a place with such lovely wood work and gut it out, :O

*think they'd just buy something more to their liking... wow...
all that great work and care, gone, :O


say, my brother walter, is a design (from starting as an architect)...
he does all that 'counseling' with clients, etc... he loves teh creating part best, as, it can be hard to work with city and clients and zoning, etc, to get to all to where the client loves! it and you are allowed to do it...


:)
i had always wished i could do stuff with wood, even if just fences, man oh man... but sadly, i can't use a saw or hammer, or anything, :O :(
i love designing but could not handle the math-part...
i CAN do this part though:
i can go into a room and see just what to do and how it will look, hee hee, but have not the funds to buy the stuff (so don't often do it)--though thrift stores help... :)


thanks for these wonderful shares... yes, it does make me feel good all day, i LOVE seeing what the brain can do, through the body, and spirit, and how it can BLESS others...

keep up the great work, edge and all the others here, with your
BUILDING!!! ... :)

this is my little 'new build' up against my wall:

looks mess, with the keyboard there and wires, but i have since SCREWED IN A SHLEF in front of the computer... little 'tray type' shelf for to set the keyboard on... works, great! didn't have to build the wood-- "ye ol' thrift store" had the answer, :))

just put a teapot and two cups-and-saucers on the very botton...
looks neat, :)
tea time, here is easy now, :))
(use them for the little table in the room that does NOT show here...


:)


happy good day to you all...
happy supertopo, as well...

got to go clean now, :O :)

Edge, it don't get no better! In my experience one out of three richies are not a PITA to work for. Maybe it is one out of two but the buttholes skew your perception and recollection. And to be honest it is their interior designers that are the worst cause they will invariably try to blame their incompetence and tardiness on others.

You got it spot on with the interior designer comment. There are two types of interior designers. Bad ones and really bad ones. Yet somehow they all make more money than I do. lol
