Custom Built-in Cabinetry  

21st Century Building Company built this wall unit for a couple in Birmingham, who had just purchased the home. Building an entertainment center into your home can add flare and functionality to your living room.  Designing in a high definition flat screen TV is essential in today’s world of media.  Art and family photographs make your new entertainment center personal.  Having a new stone fireplace surround with a rustic, solid wood railroad tie mantle adds warmth for the holidays.  The wet bar makes the space functional for entertaining.  And storage is abundant for DVD’s, hidden electronics, firewood, and other easy-to-access items.

Much thought was given to this project when the homeowners requested 2 rooms be combined into 1 “great room”. 21st Century Building Company’s Design Team swung into gear to create a space befitting the custom-built “wall unit” that awaited. Technical engineering was called in for the 22’ long, 1,100 lb. steel I-beam that was inserted into the ceiling.  Cutting the upstairs floor joists was required, then hoisting the beam into place with mechanical advantage that could lift a crane.
