This project involved renovating a bedroom in a mid-sized terrace house. The unusual room shape made it difficult to use conventional desks in the limited space, so a custom desk was built instead. The desk is constructed from low-cost exterior-grade ply, 2x1 batten, and edged with a profiled pine bead. Underneath the desk is a specially created x-brace structure, designed to handle heavy weight such as IT equipment. The additional shelves are constructed in the same manner, to compliment the desk.
The completed office suite is finished with a medium oak stain & clear coat varnish, matching the new doors, skirting boards, windowsill, and oak hardwood floor.
The project was completed in July 2006.
