Morse Constructions Project Featured in New Old House Magazine

When interior designer Barbara Elza Hirsch decided to renovate the master bath in her Acton, MA farmhouse, she turned to Morse Constructions to realize her vision. Barbara is principal of Elza B. Design Inc. and a frequent collaborator with Morse.

We stripped the bathroom down to its bones and built the bathroom that you see here:

We were thrilled that Barbara won a Designers Shine Award from Designer Bath and the bathroom was featured in this ad in New England Home.  Now we are just as pleased that the bathroom was featured in the Winter 2015 issue of New Old House magazine! The magazine is on newstands now (December 2015) and is available on iTunes for download.

Home Remodeling Tip: Where to Put the TV

When Paul and Karen Morse remodeled the first floor of their own home, they were faced with a common dilemma: where should they put the TV?  They enjoyed having friends over to watch movies or slide shows from recent travels, but they did not want the TV to be a focal point. Our solution was to mount a flat screen TV on a recessed wall mounting bracket that extends and swivels for optimal viewing positions, yet rests flat against the wall when not in use.  A DVD player, cable box and other attachments remotely connect to the TV from a storage location in the kitchen desk area.

As TVs get bigger and bigger, the old solution of hiding them in a wall unit or armoire is often not feasible. At the same time, many homeowners don't want their TV to be the first thing visitors notice when they walk into a room. Fortunately, there are many creative solutions to this design challenge, ranging from sliding panels that may be tucked unobtrusively into a wall, to stashing the TV in the ceiling. This slideshow from Houzz.com offers great inspiration (just click the arrows at the bottom to scroll through the slideshow or anywhere on the sliders to read the full article).
