We pretty much finished this Greenwich Village job. Have a couple of minor doodads to put on. It was a good job for a great client. Here's a couple of pics-









And the living room, which is back to back with the stove elevation.







We might try to photograph this job with a better setup later. Its hard to get back and do it, and I can't afford a pro. We'll see. I'm going back in to an earlier job next week, to measure for another little furniture piece. This job was in ebonized ash and heart pine, and I'm going to try to do some photos there.

Thanks for looking!

Awesome work, Cricket. And I love the kitchen layout - great for cooking, rather than just looking-at.

And that panel in the livingroom is beautifully done. Nice work!

Beautiful, Cricket! The Village was never that upscale in the 70's.

Thanks very much guys! Just about all of Manhattan aint like it was in the 70's, or 80's or even 90's. I think this little apt. went for about 4 million, and this is W. 12th St. Property values even in Brooklyn have increased by a factor of 5 since the early nineties. I'm not complaining though.

I really enjoy working in NYC.

Thanks for posting these Cricket!!!
Top end job, you guys do some stunning work
I noticed in the picture above how the stone grain is running horizontal to the left, and vertical on the right. Is that meant to be?

The stone and its orientation was very much the client's choice. I've never seen stone quite like this. The color is very unusual. I think that the vertical grain in this elevation has to do with the boxed in ( stand pipe) section on the right.

I'm guessing they followed what would be considered the natural flow of the counter top.

Great work Cricket. Although I have to say I'm glad I'm though with those types of installs. I'm admiring your work and exhausted at the same time, because I know whats involved with getting it done. The details never seem to end. Mostly its the load in and load out I hate.

Anyway, you've got that boat to look forward to now!

Yes, and do that 3 or 4 times over the course of a job, parking on the street with one eye out for the traffic cops because all parking, loading, or unloading is illegal, commercial plates or not- down a twisty set of stairs to the basement and an awsomely undersized service elevator, wrangle with the building guys, grease a few palms. I've been doing it in NYC for 25 years, and it does get old, but the quality of the work makes it all worthwhile...well mostly.

That's interesting, Cricket. Is there no legal way to bring in building materials in NYC?

Beautiful work, by the way!
