I was sitting in the new room drinking my tea and looked up and saw the forest for the trees…..look close at the end wall and you will see three (3) trees.

Experimenting….? Never tried mudding paneling…..but I want to cut down the cost of pine 1x3’s as used in the original building……I chose 5mm luan to cut the weight over drywall. I know many people have used drywall with much success……it was a weight trade off for me.
The ceiling and the top 8 inches of the wall will be white……if I can find 48 feet of Victorian picture rail molding that will go at the bottom of the white 1x8 around the top of the wall…..will use 1x3 for baseboards……..the walls will be a sharp & crisp Granny Smith Green.

The new flooring

My neighbor asked if I would go to home depot with him……he said he just wanted to go walk around and de-stress(yes I make my own words)….so he put the little ones in the car and picked me up……then bought $350 worth of resilent plank flooring for my new room………WOW!!!!!

Charles & I got all the paneling up today……I only have one thing to say: “So thankful for the covering property pine trim boards!”
I drilled two holes to feed wire thru…….even got the measurements correct….first time out……now to go back and cut out the boxes……YIKES!
I will start with priming everything tomorrow. At some point the ceiling and an 8 inch wide pine border around the top of the wall will all be white & and then white baseboards and trim……the walls will be a Granny Smith Green. ….front door black like the “Haul’s”…….the back door will be covered in paneling to blend in with the back wall……the outside of back door will be the same color as the exterior (what ever that may be) as to not draw attention to it.

Charles and I got some wood on the ceiling and walls today.

I have been out here in “Haul Too” for about 3 hours…..messing about……infrared heater set on 70…….I only recall it cycling 3 or 4 times in that time…..it is 49 degrees outside…..only down to 42 degrees tonight…….once the paneling goes up…..it really will be snug as a bug in a rug……in here!

FYI…….fiberglass insulation stinks!

Insulation is up……the process took building interior corners and a crap ton of staples and one $30 slap stapler and 18 y.o. neighbor….free labor…….but I did pay him a stipend

Turned the heat on and toasty in 10 minutes.
