Well we had a bit of a break on the house work with Ryan needing back surgery and then getting it. His recovery is going great though and this past weekend we took a day to drive out and work on the house, leaving Alex in NY with grandparents. We drove out friday night in the horrible ice rain, then back saturday night in slightly better normal rain That left us one full day to work on trim in the front hallway.
First Ryan installed the rosettes and top piece of trim on the doorway that was missing it. Then he firred out the front doorway so we could install the trim around that. We have to strip more rosettes so the tops of the doors (front door and closet door) are waiting for that to happen.
We managed to get plinth blocks in, baseboard, baseboard cap and trim out the strange section at the bottom of the stairs. Then Ryan got some more chair rail in. We need to buy chair rail and the trim for making shadow boxes up the stair well so we’ll need to get that measured and bought for a next project.
I think we were both happy with how that little section came out at the bottom of the stairs, it looks nicer from the tile side than the stair side but there isn’t much we could do on the stair way side as it’s just a ‘cap’ of wood over there.
The front hallway is getting closer, shadow boxes are the main thing left in there, then it’s painting and upstairs trim next!
