May, 2020 – GERMANSVILLE, PA  |  As participants in many past THIS OLD HOUSE® projects, Grothouse is thrilled to make their seventh appearance on the show in Season 41 – The Cape Ann House. Designed by Venegas and Company, Grothouse crafted a series of custom solid wood surfaces for the home’s offices, powder room, kitchen, and mudroom.

One office will feature a Walnut wood desk with a Live Edge slab top and sides. It also features a custom grain matched hidden outlet cover. The desk drawers were well thought out and custom built to have an access hole in the bottom for power cords, enabling the homeowners to hide the wires for their computer and accessories.

A Walnut wood desktop with a unique mitered assembly was crafted for the second office. The powder room will include a Walnut Live Edge slab with a custom rabbeted edge, creating a one-of-a-kind vanity. The kitchen island butcher block will be crafted out of Kensington Wood™, one of a series of species exclusively available at Grothouse. For a cohesive look throughout the home, Kensington Wood™ surfaces were also crafted for the mudroom.
