Working not Blogging...
I've been pretty busy over the holidays and didn't take much time to log my daily activity. But, I can now say that I got a lot done over the past 2 weeks. Probably the biggest milestone was taking delivery of the flooring. I got 960sf of select grade 2 1/4" t&g red oak from Crosscuts. Very nice! I can hardly wait to get this nailed down, but I've still got a few things I need to take care of first.
I worked on the sunroom ceiling a lot. I got the beams filled, sanded and stained. Whew, that was a lot of work! They don’t look absolutely perfect: the stain is a little inconsistent in parts and you can see some scratches from the sander. But, overall, it looks pretty good. I’m happy enough.
This Saturday (New Years Day) I got the trim in place on the skylight and Sunday I trimmed the triangular windows. I will still need to go back and sand and stain this new trim. Tonight I hope to get the trim in the bathroom skylights done. After that I need to trim the window over the main stairs. Then, I can focus on the stairs and ultimately the floors. I’m going to push the flooring back another week so that I’ll have plenty of time to prep the stairs, etc.
