finally finished painting the office, ripping carpet, taking down old paper.
Had my son here saturday afternoon, laid the laminate flooring(not laminate, its that allure stuff from home depot, easy enough, does the trick)
Put up most of the moldings, still need to put final coat and fill in nail heads, etc.......
but with temps up at 50 today, and 47 yesterday, its shop time.
Im timing myself with this build. Not rushing, but not looking to spend much time or money on this, since I never know how long Ill be in this house anymore and I cant take this with me.
Its going into the knee wall(learn a new word here everyday, I used to call it the bottom of the slanty wall in the attic)
7 leisurely hours total so far yesterday and today, heres where Im at.
(face frame isnt cleaned yet or sanded, just held up there to make sure I measured right)
this isnt being made for clothes, its being used for an office, so only 2 pullout drawers on left, to hold pendaflex files. What we really needed is just cabinets with shelf space to store a bunch of nonsense stuff.
All important papers go into a fireproof container, this is to hold ink catridges, current bills, alot of my leftover paperwork Im keeping handy from my old business, office supplies, computer supplies, just so it doesnt have to lay all over the place.
If I feel ambitious, I might make a simple cherry plywood desk to match the cabinet face frame.
simple stuff, 4 doors with cherry plywood panels(I have enough left over from kitchen to make these doors and I dont want to waste cherry lumber)
the top shelf is only 8 inches deep to fit in, I built it seperately and will attach it.(the face frame covers up the two plywoods)
The center on the top will remain open so I can stick a few photo frames in there, and the two sides will have doors to hide our junk.
like I said, nothing exciting, but I wanted to redo my office, so now its a good time.
Its been ok though, working in office and garage during the day, and turning pens at night.
I turned 2 funny looking slimlines last night, one pencil broke on me. One pen was gone this morning, wife must have taken it for someone at work.
Im tired of turning slimlines.
