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.
Including trim, particularly to home windows and doorways, is such a enjoyable stage in a room transform as a result of the trim makes SO a lot distinction!
I solely received the 2 finished as a result of this room nonetheless doesn’t have any lighting, so as soon as the solar begins taking place, it turns into more and more troublesome to work in right here. However two home windows are trimmed…
So in the present day’s purpose is to trim the big window on the entrance (i.e., that appears out in the direction of the entrance yard)…
(See? Take a look at these stacks of lumber that I’ve been making an attempt to work round for much too lengthy now.)
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.
Right here’s a greater view of how these areas relate to one another. The 2 home windows which are already trimmed are on the suitable wall. The one remaining untrimmed window that appears out in the direction of the entrance yard is within the center. And the closet space that may stay open with a cased opening is on the left.
And at last, I hope to get the door (that results in the hallway) trimmed in the present day.
If I can get the window, closet, and door trimmed out, that may scale back my lumber/trim pile significantly!
Sadly, it’ll in all probability be at the very least a number of days earlier than I can trim out the door resulting in the lavatory (which you’ll be able to see on the suitable within the photograph under) as a result of that door isn’t even put in but.
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.
So we’ll see how a lot I can get finished in the present day, and the way a lot of a dent I could make in my pile of lumber and trim. And if I’d take a while to put in my lights, I might do much more and really work previous darkish! 😀
