What's New?

Here is a recent job where we converted this front porch into heated living space using most of the existing structure. It's amazing what you can do with limited resources. The client wanted a natural wood interior on a budget, so we found suitable pine, from an outside lumber stack at Frontier Lumber right here in Anacortes. The cost for enough material to build all of the interior window jambs with trim and base was less than $200.00! We had to acclimate the wood to the interior humidity before using but it was reasonably dry to begin with. That helped! A little planing, sanding and shaping and finally spraying with lacquer, and voila! A beautiful custom interior for cheap!
