  1. stairs stained

    From the album First project

    Now that they have their first coat of stain I'll go back and get the bits I missed then do the clear coat/sand thing till they look nice. I still need to paint, do trim, and make a door for the front and some sort of banister but it's coming along rather nice.
  2. inside looking out

    From the album First project

    The large hole near the bottom will be a short under-stair access door, the rest of the planks facing the camera will be plastered, sanded, and papered over in the end. Currently the entire stair assembly is removable from the house in one piece. hm, this angle shows a few things I need to straighten up.
  3. stair progress

    From the album First project

    The fit and finish need some work but the steps are level and parallel so I'm willing to give a bit on the detail of the planks, they'll be covered by paper on the outside eventually anyhow.
  4. stairs currently

    From the album First project

    ran out of 1/4" beams so I'm stopping for tonight.
  5. stairs under construction

    From the album First project

  6. stair mock up

    From the album First project

    I wasn't a big fan of the stairs that came with the kit and before I go buy a replacement I want to try and make my own. Here's a mock up of shape I want.
  7. installed

    From the album First project

    The ceiling is now installed and I can begin putting up that one row of planks over the tape wire. There is also a channel in the floor where the planks are missing it's just not visible in this picture.
  8. Ceiling

    From the album First project

    All that's left of the attic wood is this ceiling. The copper tape goes under the wood and the light wires go through tiny holes drilled through the pieces. I'm happy with how they're coming out.
  9. Floor stained.

    From the album First project

    Stained the kitchen floor. I may do something about the paper showing through but other than photography it doesn't appear much at all. It's getting a clear coat right now and tomorrow some light sanding and more clear. If it looks good I'm going to do all the floors this way.
  10. attic inside

    From the album First project

    I stuck the camera inside the room and took the picture to get this. I like this photo a lot because it looks just like I hoped the inside would turn out. I can't say thanks enough to the people on this forum who gave me tips on how to age the wood, it looks wonderful.
  11. nearly done

    From the album First project

    The attic is all assembled and only the left wall and ceiling remain. The jagged hole on the left is where the attic stairs will go when I get them and the one unfinished strip of flooring on the left is where the electrical will run.
  12. This old house.

    From the album First project

    Aged the wood in the attic, at least the wood that was done. Looks so nice I'm on a real mission to get it all done now.
  13. One down, five to go.

    From the album First project

    Well the kitchen floor is all down, now it's sanding and staining time. .... looking at that picture I find I still don't like those windows, must do something about them.
  14. floor test fit.

    From the album First project

    The kitchen floor during a test fit.
  15. A change of pace

    From the album First project

    A piece of card stock with smaller wooden sticks. They'll be sanded, stained, and lacquered before becoming the kitchen floor.
