Ten of Twelve

This month we had one Saturday morning that was open and not filled with a soccer game. I marked our calendar for apple picking and hoped that Cameo Apples would be ready for u-pick up at Weaver’s Farm. I like making memories and traditions as a family. This was one memory that I wanted to make together before our family turned to four (which could have had happened at the end of this month). I was so thankful when I learned they were ready to be picked as they are our favorite and are worth the wait. With all the rain we had the two days prior to this Saturday I was happily surprised to see blue sky and even the sun make an appearance on our trip. After picking all the other fruit this summer apple picking is by far the easiest and quickest!

The self timer continues to capture most of our family pictures.

It has me setting up the camera and me walking as fast as I can to get in the picture.

Lyndon Heath Cabinetry: Northwest DC Residence

This was my second to last interior photo shoot with Lyndon this year. I have been so thankful that I have been able to photograph his cabinetry and that we are able to work together as a team. I would have never guessed we would work together when we were first married. Now it’s my favorite part about being a photographer.

As we drove down in the morning I was anticipating seeing the individual pieces of Lyndon Heath Cabinetry throughout the various rooms in this newly remodeled Northwest DC residence. I remember hearing about this project when it was in the beginning stages of being remodeled. Walls were being torn down and were non-existent. The new layout and design was perfected over in detailed architectural drawings, specifically the kitchen. I love knowing the details, the time, and precision of the custom cabinetry that went into each space. This kitchen required meticulousness in the measuring and design as there were no existing walls, no floor, and one structural column on site that Lyndon used to measure, design, and then build the cabinetry. He was in contact with the contractor to discuss precisely where the walls needed to be placed based on previous measurements and the cabinets dimensions. This accurateness of details is noticed during the installation of the cabinets and how the cabinets fix together perfectly when the new walls and floor were in place.

In this home you will also find his custom cabinetry in the Master Bedroom, Master Closet, the Children’s bathroom, the Children’s Closets, the Powder Room, and Mudroom. We spent the day together capturing the details of the cabinetry that was once on blue prints and now were built and installed being used by the family. ENJOY!!!

The Powder Room vanity was small yet extremely difficult to build with the double bowed front.

This cabinet was custom made per the designers request out of walnut with a walnut stain.

It took over 8 men to carry inside on the day of installation.

The curve was integrated into the cabinet before it was finished making it into one solid piece.

Lyndon Heath Cabinetry: Towson Residence: Master Bedroom

I am working diligently to get all the work that I have photographed this year up on the blog before our little one comes. He could be arriving later this week or three weeks from now. Either way it is good motivation for me to accomplish the to do list. With this said I photographed this master bedroom earlier in the year. Lyndon Sentz of Lyndon Heath Cabinetry costumed built the cabinetry to the newly remodeled master bedroom. The custom built cabinetry adds style as well as meeting practical needs such as shelving and storage for this residence. Take a look at the detail of the arch panels that stretches over the bed, the crown moulding the tops the cabinetry seamlessly, the creative built in dressers, a panel that hide the radiators, pull out shelve on the night stand for a cup of coffee  in the morning, and the arch that puts the window on display. It is in those details that create distinctive and custom style for Lyndon Heath Cabinetry clients. ENJOY!
