South Jubilee Workshop

South Jubilee Workshop

The goal of this project was to create a small workshop on the property that fit with the character of the existing turn of the century house. This was achieved by using a combination of off the shelf trim profiles and custom brackets to match the craftsman details. The result is an attractive and functional building for a very reasonable cost.

This project re-purposed a walk in closet to make a lovely en suite bathroom. The finishes were chosen to reflect the style of the well preserved turn of the century craftsman home while incorporating modern luxuries. A large, well appointed wardrobe was added in the bedroom to make up for lost storage space.
