Past Projects

We've tackled projects big and small: from customizing light fixtures and shelving solutions to restoring Argentinian wooden doors and designing rooms around key objects like stained glass pieces and old work benches. Whether you're a homeowner with a vision or need help finding your custom solution, we'll give your project the same level of care and attention to detail we bring to our own.

​Take a look at some of our work below. Or, if you're ready to get started, let's talk!

Basement Redesign & Custom Bar

We fully designed and constructed this basement kitchen with salvaged stained glass as inspiration. To help with a unique look at feel, we sourced an old workbench and turned it into a bar.

We framed and backlit the stained glass, using it to inform our palette.

We raised the height of the work bench and modified it to include a beverage fridge, ice tray, shadow box display, and to accommodate a quartz countertop extension.

We built custom shelves on either side of the stained glass to help it serve as the room's focal point.

Ornately Carved Argentinian Doors

We gave these intricate, exterior doors a new life after rot and infestation had taken hold.  We carefully sanded each detail, sourced matching Mahogany wood, replaced unsalvageable sections, and mindfully married old with new.

The National Aviary

We designed and project managed a renovation to the Aviary's existing structure to resemble their Amazon show theme,  bringing new life, interest, and integrity to the set.

Master Bedroom

We fully designed and constructed this master bedroom to include a custom mural and ceiling vault feature. A new walk-in closet, windows, and custom trim restored quality and character to an old Pittsburgh home.

Downtown Theater Storefront 

We renovated a downtown storefront to be better identified as a live performance space for both cars and passersby. Our design accounted for both day and night looks and had built-in, cost-effective, and easily-changed advertising methods for current and upcoming performances.

Salvaged Built-ins & Back-lit Mural

We found these built-in units at Construction Junction and modified them to fit. We refinished them, installed a cork tile backsplash, and added a full-room-height wine rack. The mural is painted on cotton muslin and lifted from the Art Nouveau painting by Henri Privat-Livemont.
