It’s actually a 4 season room since I installed insulation, thermal windows, heating.. the works. But the customer I did this for doesn’t heat it. Anyway, that aside part of the remodel included this storage seating against one wall. I just found the pics so decided to share them.

I used piano hinges for the covers, which are supported by a 2×4 ledger glued and screwed to the underside. I think the rest is pretty self explanatory in the photos, but fell free to ask if there’s any questions.

thanks guys. Randy, slate grey would be more my style too, to hide all the shoe marks and stuff I would leave on it. The customer is a mom and daughter who are meticulously tidy.

Forgot to mention, after I was done they ordered a fitted cushion with some matching pillows. I saw it a couple of months ago when I made a half door to keep their dog in the kitchen. Didn’t take any photos of that one though.

Perfect example of the difference in quality.
You fit the unit to the walls, looks great. (professional)
(I understand you covered the gap with the wainscoting, nevertheless)
If you ran trim down the sides it would have looked less appealing. (amateurish)

There is always a case for tying in trim with the design when it goes with something. In the other thread I wasn’t taking it that way.

haa haaa…. okay, point well taken :) I think we’re both on the same page. Your comment about trim being for amateurs was a bit all-encompassing, though you clearly didn’t mean it that way. There is trim and then there is gap filler. I’ve used both depending on what the customer’s budget. Since I do a lot of work in rental units, return on investment is usually a consideration. For me, perfection is defined as delivering what the customer wants at a fair price while still managing to turn a profit, and they don’t always coincide. :)

Very Nice Project Ted! Is there suppose to be “TRIM” in there somewhere?

I think it looks Very Professional! When it’s all Painted White, everything fits in Nicely.

I also saw that Comment about “Trim Being For Amateurs” Yes. It was All Encompassing. Too Much So!

Of course we can’t all be “Professional Experts” now, can we. ;-}

OK Rick, now I get the Negative overtones of your post on my sawhorses.
You don’t agree with my opinion in another thread so your going to go all over the board thrashing me? Cool
My apologies to you Ted.

Not to worry, it’s all just in fun. And besides, this project was stick-built on site so the issue about trim doesn’t really apply.

No problem Rick, but let’s keep the fun in the forums. It doesn’t belong here in my project. Thanks ;-)
