A project's design can come about in a variety of ways. Sometimes we are given designs with a completed set of professional drawings. Sometimes it is nothing more than a rough sketch or an idea from a magazine.
We can take ideas from homeowners or designers and provide scaled drawings of a proposed project. Scaled drawings are a valuable tool in communicating a design. They are a true representation of the space involved and can indicate whether a design will work or not.
An elevation drawing is often enough to represent the intended cabinet in the considered space. Along with a full size layout stick, scaled drawings offer an almost infallible method in the design process. This scaled drawing was done to illustrate our intentions for a pair of fitted cabinets on either sides of a stone fireplace. We worked with a designer on this job and created the drawing to show her ideas to scale and in a functional layout. The photo below shows the finished cabinetry.
One of two fitted cabinets on either side of a stone fireplace. Each had to be scribed to the irregular shapes of the stone masonry. For fitted cabinets such as these, the final painting is done after installation.
