A Fusion of His & Her Styles

The master bedroom project incorporated the fusion of two personal styles.  Designer Samantha Knapp of Tiger Lily's Greenwich was charged with the task of blending the best of His-and-Her style with old and new items for this luxury New York City apartment.

The result is a cozy but spacious bedroom that balances the client’s love for modern yet traditional design sensibilities. The color palette and texture in this room are tied to the rest of the home, yet it is decidedly more modern than other living spaces, such as the master bathroom.

A Rebuilding Story

Trevor Tondro for The New York TimesNY times Fielden

In 2012 Wellbuilt Company had the honor of participating on a renovation project in Wilton, Connecticut for Town & Country Editor-In-Chief, Jay Fielden. The beautiful, midcentury home was almost lost completely in 2010 when an electrical fire destroyed almost everything inside. Fortunately, Jay, his wife Yvonne and their three children escaped unharmed. Perhaps not ironically, most of Jay's collection of architecture books survived the fire but if you look closely you can still see the smoky silhouettes on them.

Wellbuilt's role was part of a larger collaboration with a number of brilliant designers and builder, but our primary focus consisted of the manufacture and installation of a custom master walk-in closet, designed by Melanie Charlton at Clos-ette llc.

Where to buy American made building products

Made-in-America logo

Want to build a house made entirely from American-made building products?

Everything from the nails, screws and bolts, to the steel, staples and bathtub is made in the United States. In all there are more than 120 products from more than 33 states. However, the builders do acknowledge that using American products can be more expensive.

A box of nails is $5 more than those made in China and steel is $146 more a bundle. Even though certain goods are more expensive, in total, the cost of the house is nearly identical. Currently, the all-American home, which is not yet finished , is running only 1 to 2 percent more than a foreign-sourced house.

In Bozeman, Montana, Anders Lewendal is hard at work building a home he hopes will be a blueprint for creating jobs in America. Lewendal is convinced that if every builder bought just 5 percent more American materials it would create 220,000 jobs.

Here’s the list of products Lewendal is using to build the Made in America house.

Sliding Door Installation

The Installation of these custom built sliding doors allowed the owner of this New York apartment to close off and conceal the kitchen when not being used. Wellbuilt added an extra design feature by installing a wood valance to conceal the track hardware from view.

The great thing about these custom sliding doors is that they come in a range of styles and are delivered ready to install in a matter of hours. The doors were purchased from "sliding door company" and installed by the skilled craftsman at Wellbuilt.
