A lot of free thinking and creativity went into this design process. Construction knowledge and artistry were both essential in order to create the 3D birch trees and backlit sun and clouds of a nature rich library scene. We added a comfortable treehouse bench, a peaceful water feature, and cottage bookshelves to set a peaceful tone and lessen the institutional feel of the new intake area. The collaborative process became more personal as members of our team worked closely with the Ele’s Place team. We helped raise funds and labor, asking our partners for donations to support the renovations. Many individuals and businesses in the community came together to work on the design and construction of this beautiful project. We’d like to thank DeMagg Tile, Ferguson, American Flooring, and Custom Built team members Josh Baynes, John Baynes, Michael Flory, Dave Defever, Adam Starrak, Michael Carlson, and Sara Majeske for their various donations of time, materials, and finances to complete this.
