A built in wall cabinet with staggered shelving to have a floating effect. A solid hardwood mantle made from maple, stained and clear coated. Below the mantle a decorative section with custom details added, was also designed by the homeowner. The doors on the built in cabinet were a shaker design with a metal sheet as an insert for the center of the doors. Which allows the remote controls for electronics to function and also adds a extra decorative look. All original floor molding was reinstalled and the final finish looks as if all was already existing.

Also, two custom full extension drawers (one on each end) manufactured to match the cabinetry Martin Cabinet Designs has done previously. This greatly increased their storage close to their kitchen due to the absence of a kitchen pantry.
