Chris Durant, Valet Custom Cabinets and Closets, entered this project entitled Matte/Hickory  Workspace in the Garage: Under 600 sq. ft. category of the 2019 Top Shelf Design Awards. 
With the global  spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), more people are working from home, requiring creative solutions for ways to optimize their current space for home office use.
