Some color added

This is work that I did a while ago. The finishers finally have had some time with it and it is coming alive. I nicknamed this the "forever job". I was on it about 6 months. All the work was done in my shop and I delivered it to a great crew of 3 installers. The made my work look great. I could have done it, but nothing would ever of gotten done if I had to build and install.

This is only a few rooms, there are many more but the painters have all there stuff in the way, no reason to take pictures yet.

Very nice looking work.

You must have a great working relationship with the installers. Those guys make or break how your work looks. Do you work with many different crews or do you try to limit your exposure?

Usually I do my own installs, usually the scope of my work isn't on such a large scale. I have never had these guys install my work before but they did a great job. The also told me the best thing to come out of that job for them was they met me. I have since done another smaller job for them and they did the same outstanding install on it also. The crew was 3 guys, only 2 of them really did the installations and only one of them was really the installer, the other was his helper in training. He has my pickiness about quality. He is probably faster than mysef because this is what he does all the time where I do 20% installs and 80% shop work. He has a "bust your ballz" attitude. Funny guy. I was glad to meet them to and hope to get more work from them.

Thanks for looking.

Outstanding work. As an inspector in a high-end community, I often get to see some real breathtaking craftsmanship...And this certainly qualifies. The first three pictures look like a room that I could get used to living in! You're certainly a master of your craft.
