Mangas loves his job, but in the very next breath likens the niche to “shooting myself in the foot.” Many contemporary homes were custom-built in close consultation with the future owners and dont follow cookie-cutter rules about where rooms should be located. “When you put it on the resale market, it can be difficult,” he says. “The best buyer in the market is the homeowner themselves.” Though he says his niche is “the hardest inventory to sell in the region,” Mangas wouldnt have it any other way. “Its driven so much by love.

Woodwork is used for all sorts of interior spaces—doors, floors, walls, and the trim detailing thats used in crown molding at the top by the ceiling. Such architectural trim, especially when wider and thicker, makes a house look more luxurious, says Barnett. It can also be used in more elaborate ways, atop a ceiling in recessed grids for a coffered effect or in one large central portion thats recessed and higher, in whats called a tray design. Merritt, in Mentor, Ohio, often designs these complex arrangements of wood in clients homes. The company recently fashioned an elaborate grid pattern from American white oak for a large Hamptons, N.Y., home. Haver and Skolnik Architects, in Roxbury, Conn., known for building and renovating traditional homes, frequently uses beams and other millwork to add coziness and an aged character. And Pearson recently used millwork to define an area in an open-plan New York apartment and baffle sound. In an adjacent kitchen, she added trim to bring extra drama to a skylight.
