Skip Schenker’s “Fund My Remodel” Contractor Spotlight: Orange County, CA Fine Finish Carpentry Firm “Woodwork Solutions” Completes Incredible Entertainment Room Renovation (Video)

6 08 2010

Scope of Work:
Floor to ceiling recessed panel wainscot, coffered ceiling, 2 piece crown moulding, custom entertainment wall, fireplace mantel, recessed panel columns, recessed panel hidden door, custom paint and audio/video system.

This project was a collaboration of old world traditional design. The Woodwork Solutions Team did a complete remodel of Vicky and John Higgins grand family room. We started with floor to ceiling recessed panel wainscot, and a 12″ dropped coffered ceiling with 2 piece crown moulding. This also included 6″ can lights within each square. To display their art work and family pictures, we built them a 17″X8″ custom entertainment wall with lots of shelving, this entertainment wall consists of matching cabinets on each side of the custom wood fireplace mantel. As the centerpiece of the room, this mantel was designed with recess panel columns and triple stacked mouldings. To the right side of the cabinet is a “hidden door,” which resembles the recess panel wainscot that is throughout the room. Behind this hidden door houses the complete house audio system and video system-installed by Troy Vallin and his team at Custom Installations. The Higgins wished to also modify the step at the room entrance, so we accomplished that by removing the stair rail and built a longer step for a more grand appeal. Dave Monaco and his team installed the granite foe the step, bar top, and fireplace surround. Foe the finishing touch, we finished the bar, entertainment center, and crown moulding within the coffered ceiling in an antiqued cream color. the recessed panel floor-to-ceiling walls were painted in a brown satin to finish off this magnificent transformation. We thank the Higgins family for the opportunity to be apart of this beautiful room remodel!
