$1,250 for a Custom Loft Bed ($2,500 Value)
Professional carpenter Sander Hicks designs customized loft beds that add character and extra space to any domicile. During an initial consultation, Sander looks at the space, takes measurements, and then retreats to design the bed. He installs the bed during a two- to three-day period and includes a cherry staircase to the loft and cedar trimming at the opening. This bed also includes the choice of a 3-foot-wide bookshelf or a nightstand/railing. Sander will color the wood with fabric dye or can varnish, but customers can paint the bed themselves to add even more individual character to the piece.
No matter where you turn, Sander Hicks's woodwork is probably nearby—the writer, investigative journalist, and artful eye behind Zen Carpentry has graced Manhattan apartments, countryside houses, and the Sacred Space Community Altar at Occupy Wall Street with his creations. At Zen Carpentry, he specializes in crafting customized roofing, furniture, and installations for apartments and houses. Using woods such as birch, sycamore, cherry, and cedar—many of which are recycled—he crafts pieces that range from cabinets and bookshelves to lofted beds, planters, porches, and staircases.
