Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend and got a lot accomplished. Let's get started. Saturday: As anticipated, I left for the lumbar store after work, trailer in tow and picked up the motorcycle parts I had needed the weekend before, then the supplies for stage one of the studio/layout project. Since I had the trailer, I picked up a few sheets of 4X8 plywood and a sheet of 2-inch, 4X8 pink foam for the modules. I picked up wall anchors as well as other hardware and set it aside. Saturday, measurements were made, plywood was cut, then resized again as the narrow staircase is not a straight shot to the upstairs. Here is the space I'm dealing with. It is the old plaster on slat, balloon wall construction that was common over 150 years ago. By the way, nothing is level. The first task was to skin the two wall areas with 1/2-inch plywood in a 4X6 corner. While the task seams simple, it took me most of the day as the plywood had to be secured with wall anchors throughout. Sunday: I took Ang out for breakfast then to our monthly antique meet for date day. I finally scored a 2 cup, stove top percolator coffee pot that was made right here in Illinois. It doesn't even look used. For a $20.00 bill I was able to get a coffee pot that will outlast anything sold in stores now. After the show it was back to the subject at hand. 1X3 brackets that will hold the modules was next. It took a lot of time with shims and levels to get each wall bracket perfectly level and by 8:00pm last night I still had one bracket to install. It's not pretty but functional and the plywood will not be seen once a valance, fascia and more is installed. I'm still not 100% sold on my idea as I might just frame up two walls from 2X4 and sheetrock the area (something I was trying to avoid). We'll see. So how about you? What did you get done? Let us know. We'll do it again on Friday the 22nd. Until then, have a great week, stay healthy, be safe and as always... High Greens!
