I decided to do both a flexible and metal sill pan on this exterior door install. There were a few factors that I thought this would be the best approach, with the biggest reason that grade is so high. There will be hardscape right under the door threshold and I wanted to make sure no water will get into the garage.

It will be a couple months before I’ll start trim at my current remodel but here’s my #tbt. This is a 3 piece red birch crown that I did a few years ago on a set of built in cabinets.

This picture shows 2 things:
▪️
First, marking out the kitchen island is a very simple and easy thing to do to help the other trades know exactly where things go.
▪️
Second, it’s really fun trying to get new and old floor to meet up in this old house. The right piece of subfloor is glued down but the left needs a bunch of work to get it to plane out. Nothing like a bunch of grinding old foundation down and planing down old joists to make it work.

Electrical has started this week and these guys are rolling and I’m counting down the days until I can take these string lights down. This is the kitchen and dining room beyond. Can’t beat all that natural light.

I have a few odds and ends left on this arched cased opening but here’s where I left it today.
▪️
This is the cased opening from downstairs being reused on the 2nd floor. It has a recessed trim detail on one side and normal trim detail on the other.

Here’s the south side of the kitchen. There will be cabinets to each side of the cased opening, flush with the drywall and trimmed out like a window/door.
▪️
Decorative panels will be on each cabinet side and above this cased opening, which leads into the coffee bar beyond.

I use a French cleat system on all of my wall storage for my shop. I like being able to switch things around without much hassle.
▪️
In this case, I made this wall hold most of my clamps, nail guns, and miscellaneous items instead of drills, nail/screw storage and other supplies.

Making more progress on this remodel. This is the garden room, which will have wall to wall/floor to ceiling cabinets on the right side and a new fireplace. It also has a new exterior door, which replaced an old window.

Here’s a #tbt to a piece of curved baseboard I did a couple years ago. It was the only curved base in the house, so I decided to try small mitered cuts, reinforced with a 1/8” strip that fits in the back out of the base.
▪️
I let the whole assembly set up for a day and then installed. I’ve never tried it before but it turned out better than I thought it would.

Plumbing rough in started this week. This is in the kitchen and we need to run a waste and vent line to the island. I still like to gusset on a piece of 3/4” plywood even though the holes are within code. It spans 3’ to either side of each hole and helps prevent any cracking in these old floor joists while drilling.

Crown blocking, it doesn’t have to be pretty but it’s nice to not think about where to nail when it comes to trim install. Every inside and outside corner, along with any face of cabinets that get crown will get blocking. It doesn’t take that long to do and speeds up the process.

Here is my process for installing these osb leveling fins. This can be done with 1 person but goes much faster with two, especially when building with @sanchinni.
▪️
It takes some time to make all of these osb leveling fins but what we are left with is straight material that needs little adjusting to get a very flat and level ceiling.
