All of the finish-carpentry and cabinetry you see in these pictures is actually new - including:  the colonnade separating the dining room and family room, the fireplace mantle and surround, the wainscoting, the built-in book case, two cabinets flanking the couch, the cabinet next to the fireplace that houses the TV, and, of course all baseboards and trim.  I constructed all of it out of vertical-grain Douglas Fir, stained to match the original woodwork in the house.
