We have bought a Victorian terrace house, on the ground floor there are two chimney breasts with approximately a 3.2m gap between them. Currently this wall is empty apart from a small radiator.
My idea is straightforward, to have a large bookcase built into the gap, with a cover/guard integrated around the radiator- you know the kind of thing, with a mesh front for the hot air. I'm torn between also putting glass fronted doors on to protect the books from dust - the fires are both usable, and we plan on using them.
Does anyone have any experience with good carpenters/cabinet makers in the south of England (Reading area) who would be able to make a beautiful set of shelves for a large alcove? I've been looking at this company http://www.joat-london.co.uk/bookcases, but would ideally like to employ someone who has been recommended.
Be sure to post pictures once you've got the shelves finished, so we can drool over them as well. :)
When he was finished installing them i was a little disappointed, they looked very pale and had no character, but after 4 solid days of oiling and waxing i love how they look and feel now.
The photos are not the best unfortunately but hopefully they give a sense of how it looks. Due to the location of the bookcase in a small corridoor between rooms, it's only possibly to take pictures at an angle, except for the end unit
We have one wall that would be perfect for custom bookshelves with a rolling ladder. Maybe someday.....
The Sherlock set is the Annotated Sherlock Holmes 3 volume set, with notes by Leslie Klinger. It's a beautiful set, if a little impractical for reading.
Thanks for all the kind comments, I am very pleased with how the project turned out.
