Describe, in detail, the project/item’s construction.
This project was all about walnut. We had to source over 900 bd ft of 16/4 of it for the entire project for the frames surrounding the doors. Early in the construction of the home we were tasked with installing forms so the stone on the walls could be installed around the space where the cabinetry would go. When it came time to install the cabinetry, we removed those forms and slid the cabinetry into place.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
16/4 walnut frames surrounding the cabinet doors. The architect/design team wanted the end grain of the massive timbers to show so there was no getting around using it. We also did a fantastic job of matching the sequenced veneer panels as can be seen in a number of the photos.
List any items that were outsourced.
The countertops were outsourced as well as the custom steel pulls.
