Lake House Kitchen, Sunapee NH
This new, more modern set of kitchen cabinets was built in East Calais, VT in our facility and then delivered and installed in Sunapee, NH.
The existing layout was too cluttered and dark for the space. So we shrank the island by 24" and removed the tall cumbersome pantry near the stove, to help the whole room flow much better.
The kitchen before Real Tree.
Ellison House, Middlesex VT
This beautiful home in Middlesex, VT is a newly constructed house. Real Tree Woodworking was involved in several aspects of this new construction project.
Our first task was the 24ft solid maple bookshelf-desk-sewing nook. This was a completely custom concept that required some creative thinking and engineering. The unit had to be built in 3 sections that were then assembled onsite after being lifted over the 2nd floor railing. The first section was a bookshelf with 2 hidden compartments and a cat door for the litter box. The second was a 2 person desk with a printer pull out and file drawers. Finally, the third section was a sewing storage and work area, with a fold out work table and pullout sewing machine station. The entire piece was made of solid hard maple.
The next project Real Tree were the barn doors. These 6' x 9' cedar doors were made to the specs we received from the barn construction company.
The final component was the interior doors of the house. Several of the doors were salvaged antique doors that had to be repaired, stripped and refinished. In addition, some were built new to match those existing antique doors.
This was a fun and challenging job for a very beautiful and unconventional home!
Temper Kitchen & Dining Room, Danville VT
This 2 phase project was part of a full house renovation. Our involvement was in the dining room and the kitchen, both of which were in a new location in the house.
The first phase was the butlers pantry, which was made of solid cherry, curly cherry veneer, and maple. This piece served as a dividing wall in the dining room to section off the walk-in pantry in the kitchen. The upper section of the cabinet has doors on both sides to allow access from both the dining room and the pantry. The back of the bottom cabinet has shelf storage built in.
The second phase was the kitchen cabinets. These were built to specifications given to us by the renovation architect. The details of the cabinets included glass doors, solid doors, pantry pullout drawers and a custom built upper cabinet lazy susan. The interior of the cabinets are clear maple and the outside finish is a white tinted satin lacquer.
Crowley Home Office, Middlesex VT
This small home office space is in an upstairs loft and is made of maple and cherry with a clear satin finish. They were looking for something to help create a functional home office while still being an inviting space to relax and pratice yoga.
We also made a custom pine door that leads from the office space to the master bedroom. It was built to collapse in an accordion fashion so not to block the stairway, light switch or hallway bookshelf.
