« Part 1: Bathroom, Bedroom, and now living area Part 2 of Remodeling a family cottage series Part 3: Priming and header trim done »

After rearranging a bunch of wiring, we put up 30 sheets of sheetrock and did the taping. Not a fun job but now it’s done the more fun part begins with making the woodwork. I purchased about 200 bdft of oak the other day and got the shop cleaned. Now ready to process the wood to make the casings and moulding for the windows and the oak trim for the beam, stairway, and other places. here is a single view of the taped room. Remember, I’ve taken a load bearing wall down and made three rooms into one. The house is now basically three rooms. A larger bedroom, a bathroom, and an open kitchen/living area.

So, just a little weekend project, huh?? ;-)

Damn impressive.

I really can’t wait to see what you do with the custom woodwork!

Well, the window/door molding will have an architrave and fluted style like I designed for the bedroom. I like it when all of my rough sawn RGH lumber turns into stuff like this. Not easy but satisfying.

Funny how the molding is made. The top one from top down is two ogee edged boards stacked one atop the other. Then I use my raised panel router bit to make that scalloped wide section below it. All glued to a narrow strip.

The fluted side moldings are made with rockler’s fluting jig. I could do without it but it maintains the settings from one board to another for consistency. Pretty basic stuff actually. Cutting and putting it up is more of a challenge.

I really did like his wire management a lot. It looks really sleek and neatly done. I bet you would not even know it is a wire running up or around these places until you reach really close to it. ( medical billing lytec )
