I’m continuing this blog at lumberjocks.com because of the massive amount of spam in the blog area of this site. so sad.

If you’ve been following this, we took out a load bearing wall, redid most of the wiring, removed paneling and added sheetrock all over and designed, made, and installed a lot of the woodwork.

Today we finished most of the living area flooring. 3 1/4” variation oak. We took some of the furniture and spread it around in various configurations. Where the lolly column is was the load bearing wall we took out. The room seems to be 4 ft larger in all directions now. It’s almost uncanny how it was a small constricted room before where the couch and one chair filled the room.

Here’s the front room. As if you looked at the other picture and turned to the right. At the right you can see the cellar stairway that still needs doing along with the railing. (The wife’s in the picture.) It’s wonderful to have someone cleaning up after you. Makes things so much easier.

This is where I’m going next; the kitchen. I’ve already ordered the cherry veneer for the cabinets and will make the raised panel doors out in the shop. First though a floating entertainment cabinet for the living area. We’ll be ordering our first flatscreen! woohoo!

Gorgeous. The transformation overall is outstanding. You have a massively open and beautiful living area now, perfect for entertaining and I’m sure you’ll make great use of that flat screen. Are you planning to box out the lolly columns? Are you planning a “break” before jumping to the kitchen?? ;-)

Mark, the columns will be boxed out similarly to the window and door treatments. Architrave tops with fluted sides. And my break is building a floating wall Entertainment center as we just ordered our first flatscreen tv. The cherry veneer for the cabinets is being shipped as I write this though.

Nielsen, la società di intelligenza che studia il comportamento dei media di consumo, ha rilasciato la ricerca che guarda in un successo a lungo termine di giochi per cellulari. La società ha scoperto che i giochi popolari – in particolare quelli che descrive come “grandi titoli bang” che scoppiano sul mercato in un lampo – lotta per mantenere un posto nella parte superiore del grafico apps maggior incasso. Invece, giochi come la strategia Battler Clash Royale, la gestione umana sim Fallout Shelter, e anche la location-based creatura-catching avventura Pokémon Go spesso perdono terreno ai preferiti stabilite nel settore dei giochi mobile $ 36,6 miliardi di dollari. Nielsen spiega che la ragione per cui questi nuovi successi cadono dietro perenni attenzione-grabber come il gioco di guerra o di Clash of Clans è che gli sviluppatori non sono disposti a tenere il passo con la domanda che i giocatori hanno di nuovi contenuti.
