Eve's Pocket DoorEve went to several others before realizing I was the one to solve "the pocket door problem." A simple junction box in her closet allowed us to reroute electrical cable out from the door cavity. Carefully installing a level and plumb door was the easy part. Eve demanded a dust-free installation process and we were up for the challenge!

Preliminary CalculationsMy background and interest in structural engineering allows me to test ideas before finalizing designs at the engineers' office; this saves everyone time and money.

Travertine Checkerboard FloorThe favorite floor of mine is to use large travertine stone in a checkerboard pattern inlaid with nickel decos to match stainless steel appliances.

Removing the Bottom ChordPutting skylights in this kitchen was a huge challenge; the architect said it couldn't be done. Removing the bottom chord of the roof truss needed to be examined using statics analysis, something I was trained for in school. I took my preliminary calculations to Structron Engineering and we arrived at a solution: add joists!

Coincidence of a LifetimeThis pass-through required rerouting a 3/4" main water line to the unit above. First, the superintendent turned a large gate valve, shutting the water for the entire block of units. For thoroughness, I had the plumber install another valve -even though it would only serve other units above. Three days later, a home improvement crew (from another company) working in the unit above screwed through the piping and water was pouring through the ceiling. What could have taken hours to stop, took seconds.

Skylights EverywhereInstalling three skylights is marginally more difficult that installing two. The space demanded three, two over the working space and one over the eating space. What was once a small and closed and dark kitchen, is now a spectacular environment to cook, eat and interact with others.
