Our designer client @alisonmilnegallery hired us to install a custom barn door at a high end condo as part of a larger project they were working on.

These clients had recently purchased a new home and they had a vision for creating custom shelves in the living room window alcoves. The homeowners were super organized and had a plan for the number of shelves and their spacing. Their only request was that the shelves be sturdy and able to forever hold the weight of their electronics, books, etc. . Because the alcoves are curved and each one is a bit different, we made cardboard templates of each shelf in order to ensure the perfect fit. We then fabricated and painted the shelves in our shop and returned to install them. The homeowners couldn't be there on the installation day, so they left us a few notes which is always helpful. .

Fix-It Friend: Making things more functional since 2016 . This homeowner's deck had a heavy, clunky access door to the pool mechanical equipment, which requires weekly maintenance by a single pool maintenance person. They had to lift and slide out the cover each time they needed access to do maintenance. We reused/repurposed the door by cutting it in 2 pieces after adding reinforcements and added hinges and a handle to create a trap door that they can open any time they need access without having to slide or lift anything! And check out that braided stainless cable to hold it open at the right angle so it doesn't damage the plants and remains functional. . What can we make more functional for you?

The laundry room (or, for many of us, the laundry closet): It can be a small space, but it doesn't have to be disorganized and cramped! . This laundry closet had minimal storage space and was just not that functional. The homeowner wanted a countertop and shelf with a place to hang clothes. Unfortunately, the stock sizes of countertops weren't wide enough to properly cover their washer and dryer. So we ended up custom making the countertop to fit the space exactly. And not only that, because we designed the countertop, we were able to provide a tidy way to pass the hoses through too. That's the benefit of a custom project! .

This project started out with a trapdoor in the floor that led to the basement. The trapdoor was removed and a half wall was built with the ultimate goal of providing a safe, aesthetically pleasing staircase down to the basement.

This project was a fun one! The client needed a drying table/cabinet (think Kindergarten drying racks where every painting has its own shelf). They wanted lots of shelves for drying art and also a few larger spots for drying super large prints. We worked with the client to ensure that this piece gave them all the features that they needed and fit in their work space. This piece was super large, so it was built, assembled and disassembled in our workshop and then reassembled on site. We also included wheels, so the client could move the table to maximize the space in the room, as necessary. All that's left is for the shelves to be put in! . We love creating these custom pieces!

fbf Flashing it back to summer 2017 when we worked with this client to bring their backyard back to life. After a fence repair that we completed, this homeowner had a vision and decided to continue with the backyard beautification process. . The backyard space get didn't get a ton of sun and, therefore, it was tricky to keep the grass looking lovely (or growing at all). The client had a design and materials in mind, and we worked together to put that plan into action.

Our client had already turned part of this wall into a whiteboard using dry erase paint. They contacted us to create some custom trim, so that people wouldn't accidentally write on the non-whiteboard part of the wall. We took the client's specs and brought the plans to life. We even added a custom groove to hold the markers - genius! Oh, and did we mention that this whiteboard spans the whole wall? And there's not a seam to be seen! .

Ok, we know that light grey to dark grey isn't the most remarkable transformation, but it really is amazing how a coat (or two) of paint can really refresh a space! Have you got a space that could use a little refreshing this spring? We can help! Get a quote for your project today!

Sometimes, masking can take longer than the actual painting, but it can often save a lot of work (and mess)! Before applying any masking tape or plastic, we suggest cleaning the areas with a damp cloth because the tape doesn't stick as well (or at all) to dusty or dirty surfaces and then you'll end up with bleeding. For this project, we wanted to protect these built in cabinets and laminate floors from any drips or splatters, so we used masking plastic as well. It may seem like a lot of work, but the finished product is definitely worth it! Stay tuned for the before and after of this space! #fixitfriend   #handyman   #toronto   #queenwest   #painting   #commercialpainting   #masking   #taping   #attentiontodetail  

This rolling (library) ladder was one of our most recent custom fabrication projects and the finished product came out looking pretty incredible, if we do say so ourselves! Our client had an idea in mind, and we worked together to create a design that fit their description and matched the space perfectly. We've come across ladder kits online, but Jeremy took this project to the next level. He used materials that made this ladder super strong and safe and that's not all! He also hand turned the top spindle of this ladder. Now that's a personal touch! We love going the extra mile for our clients to ensure that they get what they're looking for. Because at the end of the day, we just want you to be happy!

We transformed this alcove by first repairing and painting the wall and then by installing prefabricated crates and a custom coat rack (made by us!) to create a custom coat room. This alcove, joining two larger spaces, had some beautiful characteristics like an exposed brick wall and wood beam ceiling, but they weren't being adequately showcased. We worked with the designers to bring their vision to fruition and took this alcove to the next level of gorgeous organization space! Let's work together to transform your space!! #fixitfriend   #handyman   #toronto   #distillerydistrict   #customdesigns   #customsolutions   #organization   #cablemanagement   #coatroom   #cubbies  

Our client is a clothing bank that helps newcomers to Canada start their new lives with a new wardrobe, along with career coaching and training. We built these clothing racks out of steel pipe for their store area to replace the old racks that were in disrepair with sturdy new ones made from steel pipe (designed and built by us). A while back we posted a video demonstrating that the matching steel pipe change rooms we built for this same client were strong enough to do chin ups on. (Check it out in our profile!) It's safe to say that these clothing racks are just as strong! #fixitfriend   #handyman   #toronto   #eastyork   #clothingracks   #store   #steelpipe   #pipefurniture   #customdesign   #customsolutions   #strong   #sturdy   #safe
