Design + Build

  • You gotta love when someone calls you and says they want to create a secret portal in their house. I said yes before I even knew the details.
  • For this project the client wanted to create a secret portal between their two girls rooms. The one side would needed to be flush with the wall so the wallpaper in the room could continue onto the door.
  • Creating anything flush with a plaster wall that is not flat to start with is always a challenge, let alone a circular door where the client did not want to see any hardware. To meet the challenge I created a custom pre-hung door that attached to a larger structural portal frame that was the thickness of the wall. This allowed me to shim the door to match the undulations of the wall.
