Flip Flop House: The Flip Flop Part!

This is a highly anticipated and exciting moment for the Flip Flop House!  The flipping and flopping doors!

Our clients for this house love all sorts of art – so we gave them this fun and unique way of displaying their art.  As you can see in the photo in the link above, one side will be painted white to match the rest of the exterior, while the other side will hold art.  Depending on the clients mood, they can turn the art to face the inside of the home, or towards the exterior.  Thats sooo Venice ;)

Part of the fun (for us) with these doors has been figuring out how to execute the idea.  We came up with a design, and the contractor helped us find the perfect hinge – and voila!  Spinning doors!

They are made out of an aluminum frame, so that they would be light, yet strong:

Installing the doors:

Here’s that beautiful hinge that allows for the flipping and the flopping:

Next step is to clad the doors with wood:

We are so looking forward to seeing these guys in their full spinning glory!  (It’s as if I can’t get enough of that photo! ;)
