Before & After: Custom window built in bench with storage

The before (including the framing) and after shot:


I completed the woodwork on the build including the framing and trim work. Under the beautiful custom upholstery (I cannot take credit for the upholstery), storage space is accessible by lifting the bench seating.  Vent also had to be rerouted to exit the front of the seat.

Master Bedroom with built-in closets

Like many old houses missing closet space, this project was designed to address this issue. At this same time, we addressed many issues such as adding insulation and vapour barrier into the empty wall cavities.  The two existing closets (including the non-functioning triangular shaped closet) were removed and replaced with big box wall to wall closet kit.  In this case Ikea's PAX units were customized to fit the space.  Fresh drywall, new windows, new walnut floor, trim, prime and paint.
