Bookshelves & Built-In Cabinets

The bookshelf cabinets and built-in items shown on this page are primarily intended to be examples of the range of work that I can do in this area.  Since every client's home is different, the design details and associated costs will always be tailored to your specific situations.  More so than even a piece of custom furniture, a properly designed and constructed built-in can totally change the character of a room.  Hopefully, the examples shown below will stimulate your "creative juices" as you consider the next project for your home.

Nearly all the built-in projects shown on this page were initially designed and rendered using my CabinetVision software.  Please visit the Cabinet Design page for more information on the advantages of this powerful tool.  Also, as you consider selecting me for your next built-in project, please take the time to review my policy on installation labor.  As stated there, quality installation is a big factor in the final outcome of a built-in project and my approach insures your long-term satisfaction.

When viewing the items below, click on any of the photos or names to see the details of that project.  Please scroll through this page or use these short-cuts to jump to a particular section:
