Have you ever considered art as part of the home?

Not just something you hang on the wall, but something you build into the house?

A house does not need to be a shell. It can easily be — and should be — a masterful representation of your lifestyle and design sense.

Today's doors can be as fancy as you like, with custom imagery carved into the face.

In one of my latest homes, a tree theme was used. Above, you can see the custom front door. And then on the stairway inside:

In the following instance, we found an antique door that the client fell in love with. We installed it as an art piece in a hallway.

These bank boxes added a funky and retro flair to my dining room built-in.

And lastly, this green sideboard I made for a home. The finish on the piece matched the kitchen cabinetry — but we added the funky and fun bank boxes to add to the general fun and young vibe of the house.

No matter your design style — highbrow or casual — the house itself can add to the overall imagery.

Feel free to email us with ideas, questions, and or projects!

Oh — and as a side note — we currently have a single lot left in Salem Oregon before moving the majority of the operation back to Bend.
