it's about time I see a coffered ceiling done right. I see alot of them up here framed then wrapped with drywall then the crown inside the squares. IMO it looks like dog#^&#^&#^&#^&e. It's a cheap way out of doing it the right way.

Thanks Trevier......the ceiling took a lot more man hours than I thought it would, probably why you see so many builders try the cheaper way.
Kitchen install is underway, farmer apron sink in the island is a nice feature I think.

Painted and stained stairway. I thought I was finished...but now customer wants wall panels going up stairway wall and adjacent dining room. It's an easy job that I like doing anyway.

HAha yeah.... I just grabbed whatever was in the fridge that morning.
Never been on a diet ...190 lbs for the last 30 years...never changes?

Both my boys are well over 200#....always busting my balls about being too thin....but they both agree to who is the most agile.

Funny how things get into the pictures that you would think no one would notice.

Nice, but I hate the look of the newel post on the stair tread. We always used to mount it on the face of the tread and landing on the floor.

Trevier... I value your opinion and response... feedback is always welcome.

Guppy.....thanks for the thumbs up....if you zoom in too close you will see that nothing I do is ever "perfect". But always at least adequate.

The customer, who I have not met in person, provided a small vague picture of what they wanted for the fireplace and built-ins. No other discussion or plan, so I had to design and build my interpretation. It will all be painted except for the base cabinet tops, which they wanted stained oak to match the flooring.

My orthopedic doctor told me that the arthritis in my hands will get progressively worse, cortisone injections work but wear off within a few months. Can't move my thumbs and wrists without pain, shooting pain at night without even moving them.

He also said that I have the knees of a forty year old , and that they should carry me along with no problems....i have never worn knee pads...tried them once.... too uncomfortable.

Stairs again......nothing special about these....but most of the stairs we do use 5/4" thick treads which finish out to just over 1"thick. To save on material costs we are switching to 3/4" thick....when the oak cove moulding gets applied under the tread nosing it gives the appearance of being thicker. It is so much easier to cut and fit these thinner treads too!

stop working, albys are in, you’ll have more time now that you’re using 3/4 treads, right?

I always liked the 5/4 treads. I think they are stronger and give a better look. Are those rabbitted risers your using? If so I assume the tread has a tapered piece on the back edge so it fits in nice and tight? Nice system they are. Used to get all my millwork from van lumber out of bellingham mass.

I agree.....the 5/4 are stronger and look better....but 99% of our customers would not even notice. Yep...the tread is rabbeted to slide into the groove in the riser...and tapered to tighten when driven back with a heavy rubber mallet. I did a lot of business with Van Lumber back when I was building custom homes.....always good quality stuff.

I remember a 2 million dollar house we were doing back in 01. Trim package was over a 150k, everything was cherry. Van shows up to deliver with one guy. One friggin guy to deliver the stuff. My dad laid into our salesman for allowing this. He told my dad van doesn't want to pay for another guy to go out on deliveries. Gave him jon vans number, man it wasn't pretty I can tell you that.

A delivery guy drops a load of roof trusses on my job, and comes over for to me to sign the slip. As I'm doing so I see his truck rolling slowly away and ask him if someone is with him. He turns to run towards the vehicle, trips over a pile of dirt and falls into a puddle of mud. Well, I could see he wasn't going to get up right away so I take off running after the truck to see if I could stop it before something bad happened.
Luckily it veered off the side of the road and came to rest without hitting anything.
