One of the most interesting parts of our job as Fort Lauderdal interior designers is dealing with the unexpected. Last week this proved true as we were on site at our latest interior design in Fort Lauderdale project, A Fort Lauderdale Penthouse, to manage a delivery of over 1,000 lbs. in custom carpentry!
After much early consideration, we came to the realization that there was just no way to have our custom dining table delivered through the elevator or stairs of the Fort Lauderdale apartment building. We needed a Plan B. Harrison Crane Service offered us the option to hoist the items up over the balcony of the penthouse and then carried inside and placed inside the unit. The table is 12′ long and includes a solid glass top that is one piece – we did this so that there was no seam in the glass. Sound like an easy process?
After almost a week of coordination, we were ready to hoist! With the help of Rotsen Furniture who created the beautiful table and Kushner Moving Group who was responsible for the furniture pick up, delivery and placement, we were able to get the table inside the unit without a hitch!
Our morning and afternoon consisted of two torrential downpours (thankfully they were both short lived), one crane company, 12 movers from the Kushner Moving Group team, two Fort Lauderdale Interior Designers, one carpentry team and one General Contractor.
