48 Hours To Go

I take you on a quick tour of our Cambridge project. Our delivery deadline is in just 48 hours! But in the capable hands of the NS Builders crew—and with a massive cleanup happening this afternoon—I’m confident we’ll make the deadline. And here are a few more thoughtful design details I know you’ll appreciate.


In the kitchen, the range hood is hidden in the cabinet above. Why? Because in this unit, we cannot vent through the roof. Instead, the hood is closed off and will be recirculating—directly above is the ERV exhaust. So any cooking odors will be captured within that ERV and exhausted out through the ERV itself.


One of the design details that Walker Architects deserves credit for is the addition of inside windows. They may not provide a view of the neighborhood, but they do have a tremendous impact. These windows are installed high up in the walls between interior rooms and the main space. They allow the natural light spilling in from the skylights and exterior windows to flow through the space. Additional natural light is always a bonus—especially in a multifamily unit with no windows in the shared walls.


The wall of built-in bookshelves came out fantastic—from fabrication to how they lap together. And if you’ve ever installed shelving wall-to-wall, you know that with drywall or plaster walls, it is nearly impossible to get a perfectly flat surface to place shelving against—especially at the inside corner where there is a bit of buildup. We avoided this problem by building the bookshelf with MDF on the back and sides. Although it looks like all plaster, the solid MDF allows us to fit crisply in the corners and against the wall.
