Wee House Tree House
After a few too many glasses of wine on New Year's Eve, I promised my soon to be wife that I would build her a tree house on our property. We woke up the next morning and got to work. We had all the lumber milled locally...all the doors and windows came from salvage yards, and after six weeks of construction we had a house! It isn't our full time residence as we have another house on the property but it is the ultimate getaway that fuels our creativity. "Today is life, tomorrow never comes."
Fully custom design build kitchen for some really awesome clients. Truly a one of a kind kitchen mixing raw steel elements, reclaimed oak, and top of the line modern appliances. Not to mention the terrarium on top of the breakfast nook...that turtle is living large!!
Reclaimed Chestnut Cabinetry
We outfitted this recreational room with a wormy chestnut bar and built in Miele Fridge. The chestnut made a long trip from South Carolina but now has a new home in Clinton. Inset doors and drawers all with top of the line soft close hardware. Time for a whiskey!
Country Kitchen Renovation/Addition
We completely gutted the existing kitchen and bumped out the kitchen by eight feet. We moved around a few interior walls to provide an open floor plan as well as make room for a 9ft walk in pantry! The concrete countertops came out great and they accent the farm sink and pendant light perfectly. Shaker style custom cabinets are mixed in with store bought units to add a nice touch without blowing the budget. By far my favorite part of the build was the walk in pantry with the cookbook built ins. We had a blast!
Recording Studio Renovation
We took a run down California style ranch in Chester and completed the renovations for the infamous Dirt Floor Studio! Reclaimed beams now support the ridge and provide an open floor plan. Custom steel work, cabinetry, and concrete counters all provide great accents to the amazing music that comes from this space!
Custom In Law Apartment
We took a three bay garage and gave it some love...a lot of love! We used all three bays upstairs and created a space that you might want to move into rather than giving it to your in laws! Full marble bathroom and a balcony, but the kicker is the hidden rotating bookshelf wall that divides the bedroom from the living space. Unbelievable project that kept us challenged throughout!
This Carrara marble bathroom was part of a larger in law apt build that we completed in Chester CT. The bathroom had many design challenges because of the hipped roof above. It features a pocket door that dives into the roof line, herringbone patterned subway tile, custom glass accents and a floating solid carrara bench. Many thanks to Solomon Clark our tile guy!
Custom Modern Bathroom
This bathroom was a huge challenge! This historic 1750's house had to be completely reworked to accommodate the second floor built in washer dryer and the curbless shower with hidden line drain. We built the teak vanity to accept the vessel sink and added a custom transom window with wave glass above the pocket door for extra character. The floating toilet with built in cubby above really adds to the modern feel of this once old house!
Right before my daughter was born in 2015 we were lucky enough to land a barn build for the Yale Agricultural Department on their West Campus. The 18x24 structure serves as an outdoor classroom and a facility for their urban farm. Can't believe we were chosen for such an amazing project! Inspiration at every turn during this once in a lifetime build :)
You could live in this four season sun room! Copper Mendota fire place, stone floors, vaulted quad hipped ceiling with reclaimed beams...grab a book, an irish coffee, and relax!
We took this kitchen down to the studs and gave it a total facelift. The custom hutch on the end of the cabinet run might be my favorite part as it gives the space a distinct personality. The reclaimed chestnut island top provides another great contrast to the off white inset cabinetry. Speakers in the ceiling let you crank your tunes or listen to the under cabinet corner tv. Another fun project and fantastic clients!!
Built in Day Bed
This shaker style day bed with built in closet was a super fun challenge. The space is actually a garage bay that we closed off, added stairs, and built an in law apartment above. The windows in the day bed are the existing garage door windows which then preserve the aesthetic from the exterior of the house.
