Part One: Harry Potter and the Built-In Bookcases

It was another two-week long wait for updates, we’ve kicked it into high gear to prepare for carpet. However, working every night leaves little energy for website code.

In any case, here is PART ONE of the update, The rest is on the other camera, so they aren’t necessarily from the same day/week.

1shelf1

Ron and Mike started the bookcases next to the fireplace.

1shelf2

Here is a basic layout of how high they will go.

1mikenotes1

Ron yells out a massive amount of measurements and angles, while Mike scribbles things down, man they’re fast.

The yard is filled with sawdust after this week.

1ronshelf1

They’re starting to take shape.

1sandyshelf

Sandy threw a coat of primer on the cases.

1primedshelf1

Here they are! The shelves are not installed yet as they’re movable and we dont know what goes on them yet. Also you’ll notice in this picture that the walls are painted (more on that in Part 2).

2kitchenprime

The kitchen was so gross that I had to use a palm sander to get the grease/food grime off the walls. Then I had to wash them and put this primer on.

2contactpaper

Sandy and Heather pulled the gross contact paper off of the kitchen cupboard shelves.

It smells terrible.

2jesstrim

Jess primed the trim upstairs in the hallway.

3crownbath

The moulding is up in the bathroom!

3wainschair

The wainscoting and chair rail are in and ready for paint.

3wainstrim

Mike caulked the wainscoting.

4baytrim

We are going to be recycling original casing from other windows and doors in the bays, but, Ron had to build a new windowsill.

4baytrim3

We decided to recess the sill into the curve of the bay.

4baytrimsill1

Here’s the sill installed.

4livingcrown

The crown moulding is installed in the living room.

4livingcrown2

This stuff really dressed up the room.

5scrap

Also this week, Ron and I loaded the scrap metal form the house (690 lbs. worth) into the van. Then he and Mike unloaded it at the scrap yard. Finally it’s out of the way.
