Scope of Work: Window Bench – Carpentry and Painting
Town: Boonton, NJ
Timing: 2 days
This Boonton NJ home features a wall of oversized windows overlooking the back yard. This great feature provided plenty of light, a beautiful view and lots of fresh air. However, figuring out furniture placement in this living room was a little difficult. The homeowners didn’t want to place furniture that would block the light or the view. But they also wanted seating for their family and guests. They decided that building a window bench would provide a great solution.
Window Bench Seating
The first step was to draw out the plans for the bench. The homeowners wanted the bench to front all the windows. Also, they wanted a built-in end table at the left end of the bench. In order to allow storage for toys and blankets, we created cubbies by incorporating a hinged top.
Because the walls included heating and air conditioning vents, we extended the ductwork to the front of the bench. New grills were added once the bench was built.
After the carpentry was completed, we painted the structure white to match the existing trim. The homeowner had cushions made to fit the bespoke seating area. Add in a few toss pillows, and you now have loads of seating for entertaining, or for curling up with a book.
