Maple Walnut Mudroom by Mat O'Brien

From a tight, dark hallway to a bright, functional mudroom. We installed new tile over a radiant electric floor mat, all custom clear maple trim, and two custom walnut benches—one of them with a gigantic cubby system. The space was designed by us and built in our shop and onsite.

15-17 Sherman Street by Mat O'Brien

Things are busy. We have taken the reins on restoring this fire damaged building in Parkside on the Portland peninsula. There were calls for complete teardown but the Owner/Architect and I believe this building should be saved. Too many Portland buildings have been razed to create space for high end condo units. We feel it is better to use what we have. Stay tuned for more updates on this property restoration!

Portland Barn Apartment by Mat O'Brien

One of our favorite things to do is to adapt an old, under utilized space into a functional "member of society."  We started with a clean slate in this barn and added an efficiency kitchen and bath, along with storage options and code compliant egresses.  It now serves as a generously sized one bedroom apartment in North Deering.

Sliding doors are great space savers. This one allowed us to turn a compact space into a fully functional bath.
