135 Elsie St – Bernal Heights

Paul would like to take credit for this design, but the client designed this one. Over the years, the client collected manhole covers from his work at a utility company and creatively used it in the design of his backyard. Paul and his team executed the client’s design, including installing retaining walls, blue-stone pavers, and IPE (ironwood) deck, lighting, irrigation, & planting service.

Paul is proud of the work he and his team did on this project. Client was an architect by trade, keeping Paul and his team on their toes. The client was thrilled with the outcome, and Paul was able to showcase his skills in a unique way. He used a biscuit joiner to fasten the decking together, creating a sturdy and secure structure without any surface nails or screw holes.

Paul also had to cut circles into the blue-stone pavers, which was no small feat. In the end, the client was thrilled with the results and Paul was able to show off his skill set in an impressive way.

Overall, this project was a great success for both Paul and his client. The final product showcased Paul’s expertise in woodworking as well as his ability to execute complex designs. It also highlighted how important it is to have the right tools for the job – in this case, a biscuit joiner – as it allowed him to create a strong and secure structure without any visible nail or screw holes.
