When Extreme Makeover: Home Edition needed to outfit the Kubena family’s home, they turned to local closet expert David Linda. He and his company, SpaceMan, donated seven closets and a pantry, as well as a team of trained technicians to handle the installation. Giving back is nothing new for David and his company, which frequently provides materials to local Habit for Humanity projects. He brings that same helpful spirit to private jobs, striving to simplify homes by offering custom storage solutions. SpaceMan’s technicians collaborate with homeowners, molding the right closet to a home office or kitchen or saving space with an easy-to-conceal Murphy bed. All designers are certified by the Association of Closet and Storage Professionals and offer free in-home design consultations to jump-start the process. SpaceMan’s quality products and service have earned them exclusive partnerships with many of Houston’s homebuilding companies, allowing their work to be seen in multimillion-dollar homes and well-regarded beaver dens about town. All closet and storage systems are manufactured in Houston and carry a lifetime warranty that covers system repairs and replacements.
