Default Open plan built in cupboards complete

Hi guys i finally finished the biggest job of my life so i thought id put up some pictures of it, as well as the renderings i did for the client before hand. I reckon they came out pretty close to what was shown to them.

Amazing job, Wayne. Is it a closet, or a library, or what? It seems (from the pictures) very dark and gloomy. Is it that way in real life? Nice, nice work.

it is a room just for clothing and yes it is quite gloomy they still have move down lights to fit in the room. Until then they can just use a flash light :P

Wayne, I love the way your renderings come so close to the finished product! That must prevent most disagreements later on.

That's pretty dark for a closet. It will take a lot of lighting to make it workable for matching up clothing, not to mention checking for stains and wrinkles.

i did suggest to them maybe going lighter but they had there heart set on a picture they showed me in a magazine so thats how it goes.

That is a super job, and, as long as they pay the bill and they are happy it isn't "too dark"

I would hate to have to lighten that up if they said "opps"!

You've got a lot to be proud of with that job I'm sure the finished pics will be a good addition to your portfolio

they did pay the bill and then some, you see i was subcontracted the job by a store in a local shopping centre. They didnt tell this to the client however and ended up charging the client double on what i quoted.....They made more money out of it then i did and didnt even lift a finger on any of the work, The client has found out however and are not happy with being ripped off and will be dealing directly with me in future.

One thing i did find out on this job is that 100 grit on the rotex is not good enough........so ive bumped it up to 120 and the resulting finish is muuuuch better.
