After coping with a chilly for every week, I lastly wakened yesterday morning excited to really get some work finished. However as an alternative of working within the toilet, I made a decision that I wished to make some residence gymnasium transform progress. I’ve giant stacks of lumber within the residence gymnasium and the lavatory, and it’s getting more and more troublesome to work round these stacks of lumber. So fairly than shifting these stacks from these rooms into one other room but once more, I believed I’d spend a number of days getting the lumber and trim up off of the ground and really onto the partitions the place they belong.

So yesterday afternoon, I began engaged on the trim within the residence gymnasium, and I received two home windows utterly trimmed.

After which I hope to get this opening trimmed. That is the world that was once two closets (one which opened into this room, and the opposite that opened into the visitor bed room on the opposite facet of that wall). I had them each opened as much as this room, and I’m going to go away it open like this (i.e., no doorways), and it’ll have shelving, different storage, and a TV when all is alleged and finished.

That shall be a pocket door, and whereas I typically set up my pocket doorways on my own, I additionally typically use hole core doorways. However the one going here’s a 15-lite pre-primed door made from MDF, and it’s HEAVY! There’s completely no means I can get that door onto the rollers on my own, so I’ll must name in reinforcements to get that put in earlier than I can trim out the doorway.

So it’s coming alongside! I had a lot enjoyable turning my consideration to this room and taking a break from the lavatory. Generally I feel a change of surroundings, and taking a break from an enormous mission to deal with one thing else for some time, is critical to be able to preserve motivated.
