« Part 3: Priming and header trim done Part 4 of Remodeling a family cottage series Part 5: Window dressing »

Well, it’s been awhile. I got all the oak planed and jointed and made all the window sills and casings and got them installed. I also installed the oak facing on the underside of the header from the load bearing wall I tore down a ways back.

I installed some LED light strips on both sides of the header. They have an RF controller so that I can change colors, flash, strobe, blend, dim, etc. The power supply sits in a cavity on the wall where all the internet stuff resides. this will be enclosed by a cover and the 60” LED TV (reward for finishing this) will be in front of the whole thing.

The lights are mounted above the header in a pocket behind the top molding.

A view from the other side

A close up of the header molding. It’s just one ogee on top of another.

The 60 watt power supply (top with holes in it), the controller (in my hand) and the receiver (small white box about the size of a stick of gum on the right) The rest is modem, router, etc.

It looks very good Craftsman. I just finished bathtub surround (actually the tear out work) new insulation, and cover up prior to waterproof membrane, got the new window installed yesterday and over did working in 100+ degree weather and I am paying for it today. I wanted to get it finished before my 70th birthday next month, but if I do this again, I might not make it ;>)

Great job for publishing such a beneficial web site. Your web log isn’t only useful but it is additionally really creative too. There tend to be not many people who can certainly write not so simple posts that artistically. Continue the nice writing ?????
