A Vivarium, if you are wondering, is a glass-fronted space for a pet snake (or at least this vivarium is!). Here's the vivarium that I made for a customer. It has three glazed doors with plenty of bolts and locks, hand painted in a Sanderson's oil eggshell.
Come on down to One Warwick Park in Tunbridge Wells on Saturday the 20th May, where you will find myself and a little stand of info about what I do.
I understand that when considering home improvements and carpentry works, it can be extremely helpful to talk it through with a pro - this would be the ideal opportunity to do just that, as I will be on-hand all day to answer any questions you might have.
This is a pop-up event featuring lots of lovely local businesses (including Becky's Burgess at Home Knitwear), and the first 250 visitors will receive a goody bag.
This project was for built-in wall to wall bookshelves in a local house. The customer was really pleased with them, and happy to spend a day sorting out their books to fill the shelves. It's good to see what they look like now they are in use!
So here is what the built-in pantry/cupboard looks like now it is complete. I think it is an excellent way to use up a dead corner and create extra storage space.
This is a kitchen I recently helped to install. Thanks to Adrian for taking some great photos for me!
