When you have a space in your home that's perfect for built-in bookshelves, it can be tempting to cut corners by getting a factory-made piece from a big box store.
But there are several big differences between factory-made shelving and the real thing. Aside from the obvious features like better materials and a better fit, our custom shelving has one more thing going for it: I always make sure every piece of furniture I build for you is as perfect as I can possibly make it.
In this video, you can see me going over every surface of these shelves with a sharp eye, touching up every little burr with my sander so that the final coat of paint will create a smooth and continuous surface.
Your custom shelving gets the personal attention of a craftsman, and it shows.
That finish is as smooth as butter. You just don't get a paint job like that in a factory made piece, so skip the particle-board shelving and get something solid that will last you a lifetime.
For example, a nice couple in south Asheville called me recently and wanted some drawers installed in these cupboards:
Since my schedule was full, I referred them to Allan.
After talking with the customers, Allan did some research to find high-quality drawers, but in his words, "After looking at what was out there, I knew I could do a better job for the same price."
So he built the drawers himself, and they're amazing! You can't get quality like this from a big-box store. Take a look:
You could load these things up with stuff and they would still work like a charm. And they're really beautiful, too.
Another customer requested a new stair railing to replace a rusting metal one that made their brick stairs into a hazard.
I sent them to Allan because I knew he was the right man for the job. Look at this new railing! It's a showpiece.
He's also got a sharp eye for detail...
...and a knack for making old trim look new again.
When you call us, you're not just calling me... you're getting access to a whole group of talented local handymen with positive attitudes and incredible skills. Whether you need a solid new railing, a hand-crafted storage solution, or the right trim for your room, we're here to help.
Call today to get connected to the right guy for the job.
Check out this Instagram-worthy office which one of my customers recently set up in his backyard shed. More specifically, look at the rustic ceiling I installed for him!
My client is a pretty handy guy himself, so he was able to install the shiplap walls and the rustic floor boards. However, he knew that putting up ceiling paneling can be a tough job, especially if you want long, wide boards like these.
That's when he called me... and since I knew I would need an extra pair of hands to wrangle those boards, I also called in Ricardo Blanco, one of the carpenters in our network of craftsmen.
It's always fun to work with such a talented person. The work goes so much faster.
We also installed a modern ceiling fan which plays nicely against the textured wood. The result is a stylish office that might make a person look forward to Monday mornings.
If you've got a project that's a little out of reach, why not call your local Asheville handymen? We'll get it done for you.
It must be Springtime, because I have a new house guest... or perhaps I should say "shop guest" because she moved into my workshop.
She's right in my walkway, but well out of reach of the barn cat.
She's not sure what to think of the camera.
Well, I guess I won't be using that rope anytime soon.
Now that Spring is here, why not get started on all of those little projects you've been waiting for all Winter long?
