Baby Bo explains the work that went into the balcony rails and posts. Some of the door trim, lighting, and timber framing in the living room can also be seen.
Another look at the bathroom vanity we built using leftover timber pieces and iron pipe. Ikea Braviken sink and faucet.
I really like these baluster connections vs the alternative of drilling a million holes in the handrail and deck boards. Allows for taller rail heights with the same length balusters as well. Exterior balusters are 3/4″ round black painted aluminum.
The stairway/loft handrail is completed, over the luxury vinyl plank hardwood-look glue-down flooring. Really impressed with the weight and quality of the vinyl flooring, which I wasn’t so sure about at first. Definitely very easy to clean and wear-and-tear resistant so far.
The loft handrails come together late one night as a few good men help drill and chisel out a couple hundred baluster holes. Handrails and 8×8″ posts are timber pieces cut from extras we had at the house.
Another full view of the kitchen ceiling coming together.
Neighbour and all-around good guy John slicing up some 2 1/2″ thick stair treads out of the fir timbers.
It’s not hard to do when they’re quality people like Daniel L. Here he is helping install the kitchen cabinets (with Chip’s help below).
A situation came about where we were able to have access to a Genie lift for a few weeks at almost no cost (they’re usually $$$ to rent). There’s no way I could have finished the high peaks, soffit and fascia without this thing. And it only almost killed me once.
Laying the deck boards down at all hours.
