Library & Shelving

Custom Library | Big Canoe, Georgia


The library has a light and open but classical look. It has turned out to be a real eye turner for my house guests. The attention to detail, tight fit, and flawless finish are frequently mentioned. ~ Library | Big Canoe, Georgia


Visit a model home, even a, “Dream Home” and you will typically find a library. Sadly most of these libraries are made up of raised paneling, maybe a fireplace or a window seat. What you will not find is adequate shelving. Most built-in libraries are designed more as a quiet reading room or another office. This customer loves books and asked us to solve a very specific problem, “Take this Dining room and give my 4,000 books a home.” As you can see from the pictures we were able to comply.
