This small built-in, filled an odd nook at the door to the garage in this house in Annapolis. The nook was truly just left over dead space that was only good for storing shoes.
To make the space functional, the design gave this family-of-five cubbies, coat hooks, and storage for larger bags. To give the family a place to put on their shoes, a matching, stand-alone bench was included, opposite the built-in. Finally, to match the stained fir floors, cypress was selected for its beautiful grain and durability to withstand three rambunctious boys in the house.
Solid cypress, solid poplar, birch plywood, stain, clear and white lacquer, coat hooks. Annapolis, Maryland. April 2021.
