Lincoln Park IKEA Kitchen project

Apr 2015

Assistance to a young couple renovating their Lincoln Park Condo Kitchen. They were comfortable doing routine IKEA assembly, but needed help with hanging the cabinets, and doing back-panel cut-outs for plumbing and electrical. We got the shells hung (and did some correction of a couple of assembly mistakes). I then gave the client a lesson (and loaned her some tools) in the art of "tuning" cabinet doors (getting them to open and close smoothly, and achieving uniform seams and door heights). The clients did the first-stage assembly of the 20 cabinets, we then hung them, and the clients then proceeded to attach; doors, drawers, cabinet shelves, plinths, lights, etc. This two day project broke down to about $800 for labor, and $25.00 for parts (mainly heavy duty dry-wall anchors and cabinet screws).

Inverness Mansion closet installation project

Jan 2014

Clients newly constructed 4-car home in Inverness subdivision (every home has a 4+ car garage). The first general contractor vanished with deposit money, forcing clients to step in and manage the completion of all construction themselves. After hiring closet professionals for the master bedroom and master pantry, the client reached out to me for more affordable shelving for another eleven closets. We also installed about 15 towel or toilet paper holders across five bathrooms. The $3,500 breaks down to about $2,000 in materials and $1,500 for a week of labor. Here is a link to a video on my YouTube channel of the completed project. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLeV6g1c93U New construction of a mansion in Inverness.
