Dear PoPville – Built-in Bookcases/Carpentry

Photo by PoPville flickr user christopher.poole

“Dear PoP,

I own a renovated Victorian rowhome in Columbia Heights and my husband and I have a ton of books. We need more space for them. We want to have built-in bookcases installed in the dining room and/or the living room. Can any of your readers give recommendations on excellent woodwork/carpentry companies that they have dealt with? Thanks!”

If folks have recommendations, can you also say how much the project cost?

Ed. Note: If anyone has photos they’d be willing to share please email to princeofpetworth(at) I’m always looking for photos of renovations to share from small carpentry projects to bigger kitchen, bathroom or other renovations. Even better if you have before and after photos.
