Todd and Cass have continued on the hardwood and only have the two master closets to finish. The master bedroom was a bit of a pain especially in one corner once we removed the old OSB. Subfloor wasn't supported along one edge, and the floor joists were sagging about an inch and a half. I should have expected it as this is the area above the French door below and where we shimmed up most of the ceiling joists from below, but the last two we never could get to budge, so I trimmed the bottoms to make the first floor ceiling come out correctly. After an hour, we had it supported properly, and shimmed above the subfloor. Actually came out far better than I was expecting.


I spent the weekend continuing to work on trim. So much of it. Figure it will take the month of August to fully run it. There are things in each room that prevent me from finishing a room, which doesn't thrill Sandra. Like the dining room and living room have to have some major work done to create the base for the mantels. That's furniture type stuff. Something I'm not thrilled about. And it takes time. More than I want to spend when I have a couple thousand feet of trim to put up and the kids will be ready to tackle something else. I can sure use their help on the trim, especially the crown, but I need to be ready for them. And things like baseboard can only go so far until door frames get in, and cabinets get set, which by the way will be ordered this week.

Nearly all the windows have been trimmed. Only lacking the lower bath. And the French door upstairs. All need to be caulked, which Sandra will handle, and finish painted, again Sandra. Should run crown this week and get that out of the way and off the floor. And then put up what baseboard I can downstairs.
