Lumber used during construction projects must be properly dried to prevent warping, which could lead to uneven floors and homes with a twisted sense of humour. Treat your lodgings to a course in etiquette with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get two hours of home repair from Queen Street Carpentry (an $80 value). The cost of materials is not included in this Groupon.
Queen Street Carpentry founder Jake Elstone uncovers the natural beauty of classic dwellings while imbuing them with fresh concepts to improve their original design. Bestow a sense of relief on unresolved interior blemishes with two hours of labour on repair projects such as patching and painting. Tweak the crooked face of old cabinets, or apply this deal to the first two hours of a larger project. Cabinetry fashioned with solid-wood tops and antique finishes enhance the storage capabilities of any living space, and quietly closing closet doors utilizing Blumotion technology covertly house an extensive collection of stolen hotel bath towels. Upgrade from storing to hoarding with custom organization options that declutter even the most chaotic spaces, or re-invigorate kitchens and baths by resurfacing existing cabinets with stone rather than wood, leaving more trees outside for hugging.
Attic and basement renovations bring a sense of closure to the unfinished lower and higher planes of domestic existence. These include restoring an old stairwell to its natural lustre or conjuring an entirely new place to unwind from nothing but wall studs, cobwebs, and a lock of hair from an unfinished two-by-four. Queen Street projects are commonly known to spill forth from interior confinement, dressing up backyards with covered porches, pergolas, and three-season rooms.
