Getting decent images of these built in bookcases was a little sketchy with my cell phone but I think it gets the idea across okay. The Bookcases actually extend all the way across the top of the window with a 12 inch "Cubby". All of the drawers are file drawers. These are built in a house located in Broadripple. I enjoy working on older homes as matching the moulding and the uneven walls and floors add a bit of a challenge to the work.
It can often seem as though closet space is at a premium. Here, I built a 6 foot wide by 2 foot deep closet above the garage to hold an upstairs washer and dryer. An engineer was hired to draw up the plans and I built it to those specifications. The post at the Garage stairs is to support the end of the Laminated Beam that holds the weight of the Washer and Dryer. I also rebuilt the garage steps so that they would be deeper per request of the Homeowner.
This is a detail shot of Two Part Crown Moulding (base and crown). I was brought in to finish this job that had been started by someone else. I get the impression that they didn't know how to run the Base and the Crown as this was the only section of the beams where the Two Part was missing. Being an angle that is over 45 degrees on the Miter Box does make running the moulding tricky.
This was a basement finishing job. The Built In Wine Rack was the only picture that I took of the job. It consisted mostly of setting doors, building closets, and running casing and base board. I consider these the 'Bread and Butter' of Interior Trim Carpentry.
