1232 Residence Update 11

Another RDM kitchen project wrapped up last month. This one very different from the last post below in style but it turned out great and has some pretty cool things going on. The cabinets are traditional in style and finished with a simple off-white paint. We were limited by an existing dining room wall and the stair to the basement so we had to work within the existing shell. We made some changes to get an additional couple feet of...

1232 Residence Update 10

And then there was paint! To say that the paint in this room is subtle would be an understatement. The trim and ceiling is satin and the walls are flat. This slight difference in finish is enough that they appear to be a different color. We replicated the existing shelves on the right with another set. This simplified this corner and provided some more much needed storage space. Here is a view of the desk piece and the...

Belvedere Update 17

A beautiful day for a site visit out at Lake Quivira. The warm weather means construction hasn't skipped a beat. The front isn't a whole lot more complete with the exception of the stone work. Because there is a belt of cast stone between the stone and stucco, the mason can only go so far and the stucco can't be started until that is installed.  The stone work on the base has also advanced as fas as it...

1232 Residence Update 9

Went by to check out the final prep for paint. All the trim is in and the cabinets are installed. It looks great even unpainted, I can't wait to see it painted. Everything will be basically the same color but different degrees of gloss / flat. This is one of the trick pieces in the project. When both parts are folded away it looks like a normal cabinet but when entertaining it can be folded out to become a...

2019 Residence

Windows are in and shingles are on. It is hard to see but the panel trim is in as well and looks great. A view of the inside of the 2nd floor bedroom. The bump-out is sized for a king-size bed and the windows are located high enough to allow for a headboard and privacy from the street. This is the addition to the back of the house. Much smaller, it houses the laundry and an enlarged closet....

“Its just a stair Rick”

We posted some install pictures of this not too long ago but its come a long way since then, at least it feels to us like it has. After a lot of trimming and sanding to accommodate the uneven floor and a dimensional mistake by the stair fabricators up north this stair is in and will not be moving any time soon. The glass and handrails are in with the exception of the last panel at the top which is still...

Phosphor Studio

When Phosphor Studio (the guys responsible for our new website and frequent tech support ninjas) approached us to design a new office and production space for them in an existing downtown KC building we were obviously excited. When he said he wanted to incorporate a green roof and enviromentally responsible materials throughout it seemed like a perfect fit. The building had an existing mezzanine that would have been perfect for offices but it had no natural light and the...
