Project Description: This project was a combination of many requests. The client downsized from a large house to a retirement community, into a 2 bedroom apartment. the 2nd bedroom had to become the catch-all room including a craft station for sewing, a tv media room, a home office workstation that was wheelchair accessible along with a Queen size Murphy bed for their visiting guests.

Project Construction Details: Client wanted every inch of cabinetry to serve a specific purpose. All wood cabinetry and solid wood doors. The Murphy bed had solid wood picture frame shelves mounted on the front of the bed to hold their collection framed needlepoint and family pictures. The upper and side cabinetry around the bed is storage.

The main home office wall, media center and craft center with drop down table has many features. lighting throughout the entire system including each upper display section for their collection of glassware. The sewing craft station with pocket doors,has storage drawers and a drop down table for sewing. The flat screen tv has storage underneath for all of their components . The home office, workstation with pocket doors has a removable rolling printer cart, and a pull-out keyboard shelf.

When all the work is done, both the craft center and home office pocket doors are closed to convert the room to a media room or guest bedroom. the pocket doors offer the client a bit more privacy of their personal belongs from their guests.
