Commissioned Work

These are exciting times for Gray House Design Co. due to several factors.  Kayla and I just officially launched our website.  We have been writing our long term business plan and dreaming of what Gray House Design means to us and what it will become over the coming years.  Last week, I was contacted by a local Interior Designer/General contractor that focuses on design and build out of home renovations with a request to build two commissioned pieces of furniture.  The first piece will be a custom designed freestanding Hall tree/grounding station to give a huge wall in the entryway of a home some purpose.  The second piece will be a custom built in consisting of wrapping two existing round columns with square column wraps that extend 16 feet to the ceiling of the great room in this home in historic Summerville SC.  Extending across the two columns will be two faux wood beams. Between the columns on the first floor will be installed bench seating that doubles as storage and will provide seating within the dining area.  Here’s the fun part, I have 4 weeks to finish the design, measure, build and install both pieces so like I said, exciting times here at Gray house Design Co.  After that project wraps up I have a commissioned custom kitchen island in the hopper with details to come.
