The Rolling Hills Bar


Here is what the client had to say about it in a referral request:

I have known Mark for many years and his work is masterful and impeccable. I live in the Los Angeles area and Mark (as you know) is in Portland. We had him design and build some major architectural woodworking for our great room. The project consisted of a wet bar with cantilevered glass shelving, and an entertainment center and on the other side of the room is a library and fireplace surround.

We did almost the entire project via email and telephone (he did have to come down to take final measurements as this was a custom installation). He sent conceptual drawings which we discussed and refined to satisfy our mutual vision for the project. Once that was completed, he sent detailed dimensioned schematics (we had to work with electricians and plumbers etc due to the complexity of our project). He also sent us finish samples for us to choose from via FedEx so that we were able to make our selection and then precisely match granite and stone. Once we finalized all of the details, Mark fabricated the components in his shop. He sent me progress status and pictures of the pieces as they were working on them. Once completed, he shipped the pieces down, and then in my case, came down and assembled and installed them.

The project was completed exactly on time as promised. I can’t say enough about the quality of his craftmanship, he is truely an artist and I am confident that you will be as happy and pleased as I am should you go forward with the project. I always get many compliments when I have friends over to the house and they see Mark’s work. The distance really wasn’t an issue at all, Mark is very responsive to both email and phone calls. :-)
