Forest Hill South House 2

It is always exciting to see the leap from design drawings to fabrication - we visited Parallel General's pristine custom millwork shop this morning and saw the pieces being made for the painting studio: the beautiful sliding walnut doors, a generous island worktable with solid edging and perfectly veneered surfaces, and long floating shelves.  The care taken for the selection and installation of each machine in their millwork shop was impressive - revealing a thoughtful economy and understanding of craft.  The abundance of cake and delicious espresso was also extremely charming.

The lacquer colours, hooks and hand made sand-cast metal handles have been selected for the full height custom cabinetry also being fabricated for the front hall entrance, so those pieces will be completed very soon as well.  Can't wait!
