Great use for the upper floor of a garageTraditional Home Office, Burlington

This studio space above the garage serves the clients needs for her custom card making hobby. Utilizing the kneewalls we were able to carve out lots of great storage space with drawers and shelves. The sink is a salvage soapstone piece. The skylights provide both fresh air and help illuminate the space wonderfully during the day while the medium pear pendants from George Nelson and the Cirrus Ceiling Fan/light by Modern Fan Company help move the air and illuminate in the evenings. A great space for designing custom cards!

    There is a 4 1/2" shelf we added behind the sink to accommodate the plumbing fixtures, and it is handy to store things too. This image should help.

    @spaul, you can do a soapstone sink with counters on the side. You can have it made any size you want:

    This entire project is superb! I can look at a picture for 1/2 hour and still find new details…. The sinks in the project is stunning. What is the name of the main kitchen sink and was the soapstone sink in this photo custom made or purchased as a ongoing stocked product?

    Thanks for your nice comments! Unfortunately our client purchased the kitchen sink many years ago as a salvage item she fell in love with and we designed the new kitchen around it - we have no additional information about it. The soapstone sink was also a salvage sink, that she found at Vermont Salvage and we designed the cabinet around it.

    The trim in this room is from the Donald Kaufman collection (by Pratt & Lambert) and is the DKC-51 in an alkyd satin finish.

    This door was custom made to accommodate the angle cut of the ceiling.
    Hope that helps!

    Would you know the name of this style door, with the joined slats and Z brace?

    Our paint schedule says that this is DKC-64 from the Donald Kaufman Collection in a Latex Eggshell finish. You might want to order chips since some colors were changed in the field. Good luck!

Do you plan to start a home habit? Sometimes a home improvement can simply be enhancing how you live in the house, without redecorating or remodeling. Whether you decide to start every day with making the bed or promise to prepare more sit-down meals with your family, the new year is also a time to think about how you’d like to live better at home. 8 Life-Enhancing Home Resolutions for the New Year

… and the quirky pieces that abound with personality and function. In what new-furniture store would you find a piece like this sink?

Vintage. Embrace the vintage patina of a salvaged sink in your home — this antique soapstone sink is perfect for cleaning up a messy craft room. Tip: Depending on how old they are and what they were used for, some vintage sinks don't actually have holes drilled into them for plumbing fixtures. Take note — this will add to the overall cost.

Laura Gaskill added this to Small Changes to Simplify Your Long-Term StorageOct 20, 2012

Pack up postholidays. When it's time to put everything away, taking a little extra time will make life much easier the next year. But there is no need to spend money on specialty containers — egg cartons make great ornament holders, twinkle lights wrapped around cardboard will stay tangle free and rolls of wrapping paper can be easily stored in a bucket or an umbrella stand. Tell us: What are your best tips for sorting, storing or organizing deep storage?

The same homeowner had been saving this soapstone basin for her renovation, and it works wonderfully in her craft room. The architect, Pi Smith, designed a custom base to hold it. See the rest of this home

This is the studio across from the guest room; it sits atop the mudroom/garage portion of the house. The client's hobby is making custom cards, and this studio full of storage and light is a wonderful workspace. The skylights let in natural light, and also open to let in the fresh air. More vintage plumbing fixtures were used here; the shallow sink on the right is made of soapstone and Smith designed a custom base for it. In addition, an antique ribbon rack holds the client's ribbon collection. In contrast to that, George Nelson's midcentury modern pendant lights and a modern fan hang overhead.
