Looking fantastic Paulie. I don't know about you, but trim takes me the longest. To me, it's the most boring part of the addition, but unfortunately is the most noticeable. This is where you find out how straight your walls are. :)

Thanks Joe, In my case, painting takes me the most amount of time. I have 8 doors to paint and four of them are 100 year old french doors with 15 small windows in each one. I'm not looking forward to that part of the project. :cry2:

Its hard today to sort thru to find straight mouldings to begin with, and I did put a lot of effort in getting the block and plaster as straight as possible so the next few days will tell if I'll have to jack the trim in place or not . :shock:

Calm down Scott, There is no need to panic. I had to move the refrigerator upstairs, and into the garage, so I would have more room to plaster the other walls.

I do have a small cooler within arms reach that gets me by for a few hours at a time. If you give me a few hours notce on your next road trip, I'll make sure to get it back downstairs. :D

By the way, that's not a chain around the fridge, just a strap from the hand cart!

Finally done patching, sanding and painting my 100 year old french doors, and got most of the trim done. I think the worst is over, still have the ceiling and floor to do when we get back from vacation.

Wow! Nice job on the trim Paulie. I like the rosettes, and have never seen them on the plinth blocks. What are your plans for the the floor?

Thanks Joe! Home Depot and Lowes carry the trim kits with the rosettes for the doors. For some reason Home Depot are almost half the price. The mouldings were the biggest expense of the entire project.

I'm going to pour a 2 or 3 color metallic epoxy floor. That is the quickest and least expensive route to take. I never attempted one, but did a lot of research on them. I'm going to try for a marble look. In front of the fireplace and under the baseburner, I am going to lay down a penny floor with either a nickel, dime, or quarter border.

The ceiling in the main part will have an imitation copper tin ceiling.

You're getting closer by the day. Can't wait to see the photos of you next winter, enjoying a hot beverage in frt of your new man cave and Monarch. Good luck with your flooring.
(My wife is using your tin ceiling idea in her kitchen makeover, for the backsplash. Not copper tho)

You can bet I'm looking forward to that day too. :D . The wife thought I was sick today. This was the first night in a few weeks that I wasn't downstairs working on it. :rofl:

I like the tin type backsplash in a kitchen. Make sure you post some pics as the makeover takes off.

Thanks for the words of encouragement Don, that's what keeps me going ! :)

The last picture where the "Merry Bride" sits in the corner, is the area of the room that I set aside for a kitchen.

I plan to put the cook stove on the opposite side where the temporary work table is.. The wall with the "Merry Bride" will have the sink , ,counter, and ice box, once I locate the right ones.

Still a way's to go, but I'm getting there slow but sure.

We got back from our Disney trip with the grandkids, and as scheduled, the imitation copper ceiling I ordered was delivered the following day.

Installed most of it yesterday, and hope to finish it up over the weekend. Although the project still has a way's to go, I couldn't resist putting up the barrel shelf, and displaying some of my coal mining collection. :D
