I take pride in the work I do... and it's disappointing when someone in the trades charges full price and doesn't do the same. A few weeks ago, a fencing project wrapped at my friend and neighbor's house. Most of... Continue reading

(or: Deck the Poolhouse... falalalala) The deck/approach to the poolhouse is finished* (*all but the fascia) and it's looking/working pretty well. Since the deck was low, the structure is made from doubled-up 2X4s instead of 2X6s, but it's structurally solid... Continue reading

We recently tore out a hardwood mahogany deck (cumaru) that used Ipe-Clips as the fasteners... the hidden part was nice, but the installation was painful — cutting slots for each of the clips, aligning it all, etc. ... it was... Continue reading

You know you might be a bit of a wood-nerd when you begin buying wood not because you need it, but because it’s beautiful and you /have/ to have it. This was the case with the natural-birch panel I used to make this spec LP-1 album storage unit. You typically... Continue reading

Over the past few months, California legislation has caused an uptick in low-level street crime — we’ve definitely noticed the results citizen-side: more petty thefts, break-ins and overall mischief. Given that our Eichler-built homes have no windows to the street,... Continue reading

Julie saw our LP-1 and LP-2, but she and her husband, Eric, seem to have more than 46in of vinyl and needed something larger... We reduced the depth of the standard CSSU and made a few other tweaks and here we have it... a LP-3, I s'pose. Continue reading

Morgan contacted us looking for a custom storage unit. We designed something that would help with storage in a tight Bay-Area living space. We gave it a slight twist, too, by coloring the inside panels orange for an unexpected pop of color. Continue reading

Monika contacted us from Chicago to draft up a set of shelves for her husband — who likes blue (and we went with a white/gray/blue color scheme). The overall bay width is a bit wider than normal to fill a specific space in his office. Now, to disassemble them, give... Continue reading
