Thanks Lynn. Got the room all primed out. Will paint the ceiling tomorrow. That will be white, but still haven't picked a color for the walls.

Been painting and got it all done. 8) And yes Lynn, I did pick the color. ;D





Today, I started boxing in the windows. Problem there, I had to shut it down due to rain. :(









Just have to add the outside trim.

I got to order some more knives for my planner. It's going to take just under 200 sf of flooring. Will be the same flooring as the kitchen/living room area.

Have another problem. Most of the oak I have sawed up is reading around 13-14% moisture. :(  Thinking of moving all inside the house and just run some fans on it 24/7 till I can get the moisture down below 11%.

So much for finishing the back bedroom. The more I got to thinking, the more there will be a change. I did finish up all painting, wood trim around the windows and installed plugs and switches.

Back to the change. This is outside the bedroom.









Inside in the room.





Boy, did I screw up or what? Even more so for a change I want to do. >:( Yep, I didn't center the door way to start with. Not to bad of a change/fix. The biggest change I want to do is add some timbers to the area outside of the bedrooms. By doing that, it would carry off from the kitchen/living room areas. ;D

So, this afternoon, after figuring out what I will have to do, I sawed up a couple beams. I will saw up what else that is needed tomorrow.

Big reason I am going to try this, if it works, I am wanting to do this in my house on a grand scale. 8)

As long as your mind has a plan, your butt is still in control.  Most of us fly by the seat of our pants anyway.  :D

You got that right Lynn. :D One of the logs I sawed up yesterday had to be the nastiest logs that was ever sawed. Sucker had mushrooms growing off it. A lot of punk wood. Was a short log, but more then long enough to get a 4x10 out of it. I have around 6 more standing dead oaks that need to be felled. Might do that today. Having a very slow start to my day already. :(

Wrap it up yesterday. Just need to stain them out with vinegar/steel wool mixture and add the braces.









I like it and it made the area to match the kitchen/living room area. 8)
