    Remodel - more updates

    Just a little more to bring me up to date a little.

    The house was built in 1979 - that 70's think was still ongoing.

    I tore down all the 70's "country" look and repaired the wall - sanded and repaired - sanded and repaired.

    I will be adding "some" crown to the living area so I decided to add some crown to the hallway as well.

    The crown in the living area is going to be placed a little below the top of the hallway opening, so I needed to add a spacer to extend the wall into the hallway opening. That also gave reason for the way I crowned the hallway.

    I think I am pretty good at compounding and I filled in and compounded the wall and spacer together. Even close up - you cannot see anything. It looks like the wall - period.

    To the left - you can see a sliver of the way I am going to crown the perimeter of the living area.

    Below the crown the wall color will be a darker shade of the same color above the crown.

    The ceiling beams are still not covered.

    I am at a point where I refuse to do any more "other stuff" until the beam covers are done and installed. I do need to run some speaker wires for the surround sound along the beams and through the walls before installation of one of the beam covers.

    Tomorrow I will post some updates on the beam covers.

    Looking good, Leo. I'll bet taking the "country look" off that wall will really change the feel of the room.

    How about some dim-able LED tape lights on top of that LR perimeter crown? It's just money, right?
