Rather excited at the recent arrival of some beautiful cabinets. An architects own home is always the last on the list of 'projects that need completing', and this area was certainly no exception.

We worked on a design using our remaining demolition rimu and cedar then hunted for the right cabinetmakers who were happy to work with both solid wood and also panels for the carcase (harder said than done!). I discovered a company who specialise in boat building and custom joinery, they were happy to take the bespoke design and bring it to life.

There is still a little work to do (we need to put our DIY hat on again and do some tiling around the wood store and learn some furniture restoration techniques ... in our 'spare' time that is!) but hopefully this gives you a glimpse of progress!

Many thanks to Chris and Murray and the team at Mitchells Group. for their wonderful work!
