Now with the floors finally finished, the new skirting boards I've painted, are being installed by Mr CH piece by piece. Economy (and common sense) has the longest wall pieces cut first, using shorts for in between the studs.
Lounge to dining
We are a little disappointed we didn't get this stain out because it's at the front door. Once there is furniture in the room it may not be too noticeable.
We have used higher skirting (145mm approx) for the main rooms (to hide the white ant damage/shower rot) and lower (97mm approx) for the bedrooms. Plus we love high skirting boards, not cheap though at around $9.60 /metre, pre-primed.
The long awaited trims are being installed around the doorways and the opening between the lounge and dining. This has been an important milestone for us, finally the crappy, dirty jobs you think will never end have been done and it's time to add some details.
The first part of the new opening between the lounge and dining rooms. Working out what trim goes where, with slightly crooked walls to deal with. We are going to add a bit of simple homemade fretwork etc. as, apart from the front windows, there are no fancy bits in the whole cottage, being a Worker's Cottage at that. To offset or not to offset, that is the question?
The colonial trims are set back 5mm to give added dimension.
Now guess who's job it is to fill those nail holes?
Was going to show a bit more, too tired, next time.
Have a lovely weekend and Mother's Day.
