This is a walk in closet that had the square footage necessary to fit the clients’ needs,
but it was lacking functionality. They did not want a complete custom redesign and install
(which was more of a consideration than usual given the low, sloped ceiling), so I designed the

This is a very basic garage clean-up, completed in a single 3-hour session. The homeowner had

This is a bedroom shared by two-year old twins. There was ample storage in the room, but it was

etc.) and arranged on the shelves. The cleaning supplies were added to the lower shelves because this was a
great central location to keep them, as opposed to a small nook in the bathroom. Many shelves were labeled
to ensure that similar, but different items were not mixed up.
