Here is a short video update of where things are with the apartment project. We have demoed out most of what needed to go. The plumbing contractor is now well into overhauling everything that was patched and patched again. The electrical service has been separated and the apartment now has its own meter and panel.
We have completed a small custom cabinet project where the homeowners were looking to match their existing cabinetry in a small craftsman style home. These two cabinets are installed over the range and refrigerator and although they offer only a little of storage space they added much to the visual appeal of the lonely wall.
The cabinets were finished with Sherwin Williams Pro Classic waterborne acrylic in Downy White. This was the first time we have sprayed our cabinetry with a low VOC latex product and the results were very nice. Our normal proceedure is to use Benjamin Moore pre catalyzed undercoater and laquer topcoats. The Sherwin Williams offers great durability and a much nicer working environment in the shop. We will continue to use Benjamin Moore pre catalyzed products but will offer the option to have the lower VOC finishes.
