murphy bed

Sean proved to be an exemplary professional. His attention to detail, creativity and his ability to solve problems quickly were reflected in his craftsmanship. He was responsive to the scheduling of the customers time frames and accommodated accordingly. We would absolutely recommend him to family and friends.

Custom Corner Cabinet

We reno'd our living space and put a gas fireplace in the corner. The layout of the room meant the corner was the best place for it. Sean then built a wonderful entertainment cabinet around it. It even has a pull-out shelf for the TV that swivels so you can point the TV to any part of the room, which was a great idea. The front is made from a single 4X8 sheet of wood which looks beautiful.
The little piece of green tape is so we could open it before the handles were attached. We liked the look so much we didn't put handles on at all, but we did remove the tape!
Unfortunately, no before pictures, but that was only a corner with a lone fireplace in it.
As well, a piece of conduit in the back made it easy to run cables into the back for TV, satellite, power, etc etc.

Bedroom Closets (walk in, reach in)

GNS Designs helped me alot. Sean worked with me to come up with the best design possible - maximizing space and ease of use. He also helped me convert my swing doors to sliding doors giving us even more space. Sean was very professional and was able to show me how everything would look on his computer before any work started. The work was done on time and the quality of materials and workmanship was great. Sean does more than closets and I will surely be calling him for my other projects. Thanks alot Sean.

Roof, repaired, corrected, reshingled.

Roof of the home was rotting away. It turned out that the roof extension of a previous addition was done incorrectly. Sean redesigned the angles so they were correct and shed the water properly. No more rotting roof! Sean's great with wood, but as a structural engineer he can make it do anything, and does it right. Thanks GNS!

Built in Cabinets in Family Room

We hired GNS designs to help us create a built in cabinet in our family room. During the whole process of figuring out what we want, designing it, and then building it, we were extremely impressed with the depth of knowledge and experience at each stage. Sean, (owner) was great to work with. The final product left no detail to spare, and we really feel Sean went above and beyond.

Custom-built wall unit

We wanted a built-in wall unit for our family room. We sat with Sean to give him an idea of what we wanted. He had great suggestions for the design, including dimensions, lighting, and accomodating our many collectibles. The design he came up with was perfect. A huge contribution to our family room make-over. The unit is stunning. The craftsmanship, quality, precision and detail are incredible. We have received so many compliments, as well as requests for Sean's contact information. We have since had Sean back to take measurements for a few more projects in our home. Thanks again Sean.

Custom Design Wall Closet

Sean designed and built a custom wall closet in our home. It was custom as it had to fit in an odd shaped area. He came up with a great design in no time. The completion process took a bit of time as we had a problem getting proper frosting on the doors as they were tempured glass which cannot be sandblasted too much and we wanted the frost to hide the clothes inside. Even though it took time to get this part done, the end result is beautiful and we are very happy. Aside from quality, Sean is also a very nice guy, trustworthy and true to his word. I have already recommended him to a friend and have him quoting on another job for us.

Cedar Deck Design and Build

Sean Skimin and GNS Designs was recommended to us by a friend who was very satisfied with his service. He did not disappointed and surprised us with his flexibility and Design and building knowledge. The Deck is all cedar with pressure treated wood as the base structure. He stuck to the budget and surprised us with his ideas and drawings. The solution to add the wainscoting railing to hide the damaged bricks was sheer brilliance. I wanted to thank him as Everyone who sees the Deck and it's quality and practically of the design want us to give him there number. We have passed his name along to 5 friends and we've only had the deck for a month!. Thank you again Sean We will be calling you back for all of our building need. Overall, Sean is very honest, available and he really does care. Great Work Sean You are a true Craftsperson/ Artisan All the Best

Cabinet and Shelving

We would highly recommend GNS Designs and Sean Skimin. He came into our home, he reviewed some pictures from magazines that appealed to us, Sean took measurements and the magazine pictures, went away and came back with exactly what we were looking for.
Sean was very professional. At the end of the day when we came home from work, we would not have know that Sean was there, except for the fact that new shelving was up. Very, very tidy worker.
We would not hesitate to recommend GNS Designs. The photos speak for themselves.
