I was waiting to post final pictures from this job until the professional photographer got there, but the contractor is taking too long to get the pictures taken. So here are some pictures that I took with my Palm Treo phone. I didn’t build the kitchen cabinets here, they are pre-built ones that I set. I trimmed the house and built the built-ins and mantel around the fireplace. They are poplar, painted black, with copper “distressing.” The trim is poplar also.

Update! I uploaded 3 new pictures of this project. These were taken by John Pottenger at www.coastline-studios.com.

Nice looking work Sparky!
I t would have been nice to have a set of shelves on the right side off the fireplace to keep every thing in balance.

With the stairs where they are, there wasn’t room for shelves on the right side. I wanted to keep the cabinets symetrical, so I made the book shelves on the left, and set them back a three inches to “seperate” it from the cabinet.

I really like the color of the trim. What color stain did you use.

I am not the finisher, but I believe it is a Walnut stain. The finisher is Rolly Wilcox. He finished the built-ins too. If you need a painter/finisher in the west Michigan area, I couldn’t recommend anyone better than Rolly. He makes my work look good. :)
The fireplace is about 20 feet tall. Its a very impressive room.

What a view. Is that your house or a client’s. Either way, you must be proud.
