Too much time
I realize allot of people have wondered why I have spent so much time here. This is the best answer I can give you. Every decision has to be passed between 2 people that never really had a clear decision on anything. And they differed between the two of them. I could only take a background drop, and kind of go with what they wanted, but only really had what they alloted me to work with. Thus, neither one are totally happy, but both are ok, I think, with what I did. They wanted a more rustic look..but did not provide me with the materials to do it. And I advised against it anyway. Using rough sawn lumber as interior trim invites a great deal of high maintenance cleaning issues. It is going to be hard enough with the exposed beam ceiling in the basement and log walls on main floor. Cobwebs come to mind. Easy to brush off a smooth surface, but try it on a rough one once. Anyway, I am rambling, another couple days to pics of finished, although I will be here a tad bit longer. I need to build a gun cabinet for my father while I am here, and have another small job to do in the town I am near that I picked up on the side. I will post the pics of the gun cabinet when I get it done. It is about 25 years too late in delivery, but I am hoping it is going to be worth the wait.
