Edgework at Home: Garden Guest House


Not your average potting shed.

The main floor of the guest house are what Better Homes and Gardens dreams are made of. You’re greeted by warm tones of a sliding barn door made from reclaimed oaks (1 of 3 we did for this project) and a beautiful polished concrete sink supported by our solid wood beams. We custom designed, crafted and installed worktables made from reclaimed lumber and steel with a durable clear top coat and casters. Form meets function in this sunny plant studio.



The custom wood and steel staircase is DEFINITELY the crowning jewel of this tricked-out guest house. This is one of our real-life examples an irresistible challenge. This piece of the #EWCgardenguesthouse project is special because it brings our level of custom to an entirely new heights and scale. We did everything; yes everything — concept, design, metalwork, millwork, assembly and install. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product and we’re ready for 10 more.


Wood beam accents are having a serious moment. To give some warmth to this space, we wrapped the structural support beams in reclaimed wood — drawing the eye up the staircase and through into the second level. Upstairs you’ll find an open living area with a kitchenette, modern furniture and fresh cut flowers. These homeowners have an impeccable eye for blending rustic and industrial elements with modern furnishings all while adding artistic pops of color. Most of the art featured in the #EWCgardenguesthouse was purchased from Open Door Art Studio and Gallery, a local community art space for individuals with disabilities to develop through artistic expression. 


This client’s vision for their garden guest house bathroom was perfect for showcasing a our multitude of skills. Floating reclaimed vanity, check. Custom wood and metal bench, check.  Sliding barn door, check. Custom shelving unit, check. What was once an awkward layout now feels spacious, yet cozy and is full of storage.
