Custom and Design/Build

KITCHEN SHED - Finigan Color designed and renovated the exterior of this kitchen shed, replacing the old white siding with Hardie board shingles, and a beautiful dutch door.  The shed was given new windows and new exterior lighting, as well as a slate-faced roof with copper details.  It was also completely insulated and air-sealed, and faced with Insofast rigid insulation on the exterior, providing dramatic long-term energy savings to the client. PORCH - This asian-inspired screened-in porch with movable shoji screens in acrylic "paper" was custom designed and built to update an preexisting porch which was structurally unsound and uninviting. An open porch was added to the existing (but using an independent foundation), doubling the square footage to allow for larger outdoor parties. An existing window was screened with an additional shoji panel, allowing it to be opened from inside the house while harmonizing with the new design. The sliding door with barndoor hardware was commissioned to custom dimensions to cleanly fit the existing opening, and beautifully constructed in three varieties of wood to ensure its strength and durability. TUDOR PLAYHOUSE - This playhouse was built in such a way as to shield the yard from the street, and also integrate with an old cherry tree. Inside is a small room with a ladder leading up to the cozy loft, which opens out onto the deck and slide. The tudor vernacular was chosen as a simple way to add charm to the building and give it some character. See for more pictures. RADIATOR COVER - These wood radiator covers were carefully designed to hide the unattractive original baseboard radiators, while maintaining airflow and functionality. FLOWER BOXES - These cedar-clad flower boxes were a very cost-effective alternative to store-bought options. They were made to be deep enough to ensure plants had plenty of space and did not dry out prematurely, and have good drainage. HVAC COVER - This cover keeps leaves and debris out of the HVAC units, while allowing necessary air circulation. It also screens the units from view. HEADBOARD - This upholstered headboard was custom made for this california-king bed. LANTERN - This lantern makes a distinctive address marker for this house, and is lit by a solar-powered fixture.
