I’m not surprised, the hardware did not call like they said they would. So after supper I worked for a bit and got the front wall of the sunroom in place. A few tweaks and adjusts along the way.
Earlier I talked about designing the sunroom with Sketchup software. I plan to span the 2×6 rafter 24 on center and the rafter are approximately 111 3/4 inches long. There will have to be blocking put in place, one for sure, possible 2 per rafter, to prevent the rafters from warping in the sunshine.
The Mission: To paint over the ugly builder beige paint scheme that the builders applied to several areas of the home. With all the angles and open spaces, its hard to know where to start and stop. One good thing about paint, if you don’t like it, just paint over it
Wainscot and walnut flooring.FINALLY…. ALL DONE!!!! If you want to start at the beginning, go here. This project is spread out over 18 blog posts.
This post covers the final month of this remodel. All the little bitty things that need to get done before the dust pan is put away.
2 hours of filling nail holes and seams. Ran out of molding and caulking, so another trip to the hardware store. There’s about 15 ft left to install.
Spent about 6.5 hours of cutting and installing the pine trim moldings for inside the wainscot boxes… all 32 boxes!
About 2 hours of more sanding and painting. We have finished the entrance room. Really starting to look nice!
About 3 hours finish sanding, caulking joints around window trim, more sanding and painting.
Between yesterday and today I spent about 10 hours installing the window trim, applying two coats of filler, drying overnight between coats.
