My nephew asked for me to design and build something for his new town home. Problem was, he lives 400 miles away. So in June I measured…a lot! In October…delivered and installed. 17 hours of install. The uppers have speaker cloth and halogen puck lighting on the display shelves. The bottoms have sliding low profile drawers. The mantel has an exchangeable insert to change color based on the decor preference.

Very nicely done. That space was begging for built-ins and you pulled it off wonderfully.

That is truly amazing. What an awesome gift for your nephew, and a great selling point should he ever decide to do so. Thanks for sharing.

What you did is very attractive and well done. The room looks so much better and now has lots more storage room. Congratulations.
