Video of Cabinet Legs by Garrett Rupp
The finished custom handmade wood cabinet turned out fantastic! It blends in nicely with the rest of the room.
Phil is working on a handmade wood dual sink vanity for a job we’re doing in Northeast Portland.
The vanity is installed over an electric radiant heated floor. You can see the start of the tile backsplash, the wall cutouts for medicine cabinet mirrors and the perfect fit between the bathtub and wall.
…stay tuned for more to come, including the countertop, sinks, mirrors, completed tile and finished flooring!

Things to do when the Winter weather hits:
- Drip your pipes to prevent ice blockage / pressure build-up. If pipes freeze, open sink faucet and use hair dryer on affected areas.
- Optional: Install a water / moisture alarm in the crawl space. This can help minimize damage and alert you immediately should a problem arise.
- Put a faucet cover insulation over your outside faucets.
- Cover your crawl space vents.
- Close your chimney chute, if you have one. This help keeps the warm air inside.
- If you have good windows, let the sunlight in. If there’s no sunlight, cover them with curtains.
- Prepare for any snow / ice melting runoff.
- Make notes of improvements you can make when the weather improves
Things to do in the Spring / Summer / Fall to prepare:
- Consider replacing your windows. This is one of the best investments you can make in terms of insulating your house.
- Re-do your weather stripping, where necessary. Around windows, doors, sliding doors and any other openings in the house.
- Pay attention to the condition of your roof, and get it fixed quickly, if needed. The last thing you want to deal with during a cold streak or spring downpour is a bad roof issue.
- Check to ensure your underfloor is insulated. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation.
- Use using foam pipe insulation sleeves to wrap your pipes.
- Install a smart thermostat or wood stove.
- Tag your water shut-off valves and let people in the household know where they are. Use bright color tags and maybe a keychain buoy on a leash for ease of finding if a crisis arises.
