I love lists, and I love crossing things off lists! Another one checked off – the smaller bedroom on the main level is now complete.
The built-ins in a room really add to the time the room takes to complete. This bedroom has a built-in bunk bed, which the boys (Ken and Ken C) designed to go over the stairwell to the basement. Having the bunk bed required something to prevent sleepers from falling out. Ken designed a unique bookcase and headboard for the double bed in the room, which provides a rail for the bunk bed.
And the room also features a set of drawers which act as a staircase to the bunk while providing extra storage.
The other bedroom downstairs also has built-ins to be added, a desk style Murphy bed and storage, but we have no plans to tackle that soon. For now it is a functional guest room/office/sewing room.
Earlier in May, I was happy to post that the upstairs was all drywalled, taped and mudded and ready for painting. Since then I have been busy with a paint brush. It is all painted, with exception of the master bathroom. Ken is working on getting the trim up – trim around all the windows and the trim where the pine ceiling and the walls meet. Hopefully that will all be complete soon. In the meantime it is super nice outside and we have switched gears and are tackling some outdoor projects. The garden is pretty much in and I hope to have a post on that soon.
