The Restoration

With the wall decking repair work completed, the entire wall got a layer of felt paper. The sills on these windows are in pretty bad shape. Since it’s made from one continuous piece of lumber, I’m going to try and salvage it. First application of wood filler…
All of the beadboard has been removed. Lots of work went into cutting all of those thin slats of wood to make that corner curved. The bottom section of wall decking had some rotted out places, so I will replace it with new old wood. I also made a new bottom for the inside of […]
