nice way to bring the beams together. won't see that in CA.
really like to see the whole room picture it loofs magnificent
I do the "point to point" because I like to butt end grain to end grain instead of end to edge. I also Like the look. There was supposed to be a little button finial falling from each place the points meet but the customer thought that was a little over the top.
Here is a link to some shots of the office, the photography is realy bad. (I shot them)
From your website there was a couple shots of a desk. The desk had an odd looking panel in the center. What was that panel made from?
Tom I saw the same thing as you. I'll bet it's either granite or maybe even a wild colored slate.
That was an inset of the same Solid Surface material used on the computer desk top on the back wall. I don't remember the name.
Do you mind if I ask what you got for the job? And where are you.
This whole job ran around $49,000 but included four other offices full of cabinets and built in desks. I never seperated this office from the rest of the job. The ceiling ran about $20,000 of that. I didn't finish any of this, it was done on site by painters. It was after this job that I begain doing finish work again. I also didnt provide or install any of the solid surface other than the desk top insert.
I am located in the Texas Panhandle.
My God Kerry, were you able to pay yourself? I couldn't do that one office that you have on your site with the ceiling for less than 60/70.000 here in NE. But let me tell you VERY NICE JOB! This one is to be very proud of. I tip my hat to you.
I get to pay myself very little. This job originaly just had crossed false beams over sheetrock. I told the customer "You need an office that say's WOW!!" so I designed and built the coffered ceiling. All moldings on the job with the exception of a 7 1/2" crown and the dentil moldings are all custom cut in my shop. I also made all the door casings, base moldings, plinths, and rossettes in shop. I thought the office did say WOW!! As a reward for my effort, this customer remodeled his house a month after I had finished his office with new kitchen cabinets as well as new bath cabinets. I didn't even get to bid on the job because in his words "You are too expensive."
That is what I deal with. They did ask if I could match some custom molding in their house (20') because they couldn't find it anywhere. If I want to do something nice here I have to give it away. I do that every once in a while to keep life interesting.
Wow is right. Unfortunately your "giving it away" problem is universal in terrritory and not just limited to Texas.
I wish people would get a clue on pricing. Not being able to bid on the house job "because you're to expensive" SHOULD HAVE indicated to the home owner that the stuff he did get was as cheap as he paid for.
