One of my favorite new developments in our area. The @urbylife locations in Harrison and JC! Yes, this is their lobby!!! 😍😍😍 Currently working with one of the project managers that worked on this and everytime we get together I bombard him with questions. The latest tid bit I got out of him was that a design firm in Amsterdam was responsible for this beauty. Significant investment in unique design and elevated ammenities in Hudson county is extremely hard to come by, so bravo to this group that's pushing a different concept. Got room for 1 more on your team? 😎

Two keys to success:
• Expose every old brick 😍
• Remove front yard chain link fences 😂
Did I miss anything else?

A tv 📺 is tucked above a range hood in the #kitchen. It stays hidden behind doors that, when opened, retract back into the cabinet. The higher location allows for more visibility.

The infamous sticker swap! Captured a swap in between tradeoff. I’ve been trying to figure out how to present my stickers on IG and make each one special. Finally figured it out, will share soon.

I think it’s great to not give out business cards anymore, I just give out stickers these days.

The goal for 2018 is to give out less business cards because I’m running out of room to store them. Stickers are a great option because they’re way cooler and something new to talk about after a meeting; trying to explain why you have stickers and well... they stick 😁

This particular @schlutersystemsna ‘s shower system boasts an integrated linear drain with a tileable cover. Here’s a shot of the shower running hot and that 2% pitch doing its job! This pan/drain configuration places the drain in the center of our shower which was a first for us, typically they are pitched in one direction(to the wall or to the entrance). Most contractors hide this portion or shot of the “soldiers” (vertical tile that wrap the interior of the pan) but not us, we took the necessary time to make every aspect of this bathroom appealing, don’t you agree? Who else can spot the herringbone reflection?!?🔥

That feeling you get when you hinge a door and everything comes together. Were I could we salvaged doors from jobs, this cedar door is over 100 years old and has been thru a lot but resized and re-hung it is a pleasure to have in the home. Don't be in a hurry to buy new when the old has already proven itself time and again.

Last week, Matt and Mitch wrapped up the beam work on the suspended chevron coffered ceiling at the #kittleroadproject. Each coffered will receive a 5 1/2” Knotty alder crown that is bench built, spring clamped and screwed together making for a bomb proof joint. 💣

Though the crown is built and ready to install, we have decided to allow the painters to come in and prep and spray the painted chevron portion of the ceiling as oppose to just installing the crown and say “it’s your problem.” It’s no more work for us as we still have plenty to do in the project but will allow there job to be easier resulting in a much better finished project. 👌

There are some pretty exciting changes coming in the next week or so at our #ridgewaymodern project. We did a small section to test on Friday and it looks killer. Let’s hope we can make it look like @brianmorganarchitects rendering.

A before and after slideshow and some finished pictures of a 6” Bocote bowl. I was not disappointed with what I uncovered when I turned this blank! The grain patterns are crazy cool!
