I have a perfectly good indoor workshop, but on days like this you won't catch me in it.
Need someone with all the tools to get your job done? I've got them.
I usually use this blog to show off glamorous photos of my latest job, but today I thought I'd give you a peek behind the scenes.
I've been getting a lot of built-in shelving jobs this year, and although I usually do a lot of prep work in my home workshop, there are often a few last-minute details to take care of onsite. It just makes for a better shelf if I can fit the piece to the space.
With that in mind, I'm always tinkering with the setup in my van, and I recently hit upon an awesome set-up!
When I first got the van, I built a set of custom shelves in an H layout that puts all of my tools right at my fingertips. There's always been space underneath for carrying plywood or painting supplies.
My latest brain wave was to install a drawer under the shelves. First I laid down some simple runners made from leftover pieces of half-round trim. Then I greased them and laid plywood over them. I added some runners above to hold the plywood in place.
My table saw fits there perfectly, and it even doubles as a counter.
When the drawer is pulled out, voila! A rolling workshop.
All of that organization is for you, so your special project is done right.
If you need someone with a rolling closet full of tools to pull up to your door and get your projects done, give us a call. We love this stuff!
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.
