For his in-home office, the patron wanted to be to Provence.  This faux fireplace, the weathered wood and stark seams of a painted ceiling, and rough-hewn box beams were part of the whimsey.  Al was primarily responsible for the design and much of the construction.  Ashton shouldered the bulk of the construction.  Al completed the oil painting of a family-history site as part of the commission.

The remade table that will ultimately serve as the patron's desk receives some authentic distressing during the remodeling.  The 2x4s in the far corner accommodate digital wiring to be hidden behind bookcases.

Wall-mounted bookcases were also designed by Al and created for the project.
