Guest room | Progress

May 7, 2016

Last time we checked in the guest room was demoed, both of the old windows removed and framed for the new ones going in.


Lots has happened since! We added insulation, new drywall and even had an unforeseen project that included the removal of the main vent stack in the house. More on that later…


We decided to do a skim- coat over the room, and opted for the smooth museum finish instead of traditional texture. This was incredibly time consuming so we enlisted the help of a friend who had lots of experience with applying mud to achieve the desired finish. You can see the finish below as the windows are going in.


We chose a 4ft. x 2ft. casement window for the south facing wall, and a 3 ft. x 3 ft. single-hung window for the west facing wall.


We finally took my Dad up in his offer to help -here he is helping Nick out in the first window.

Below you can see the almost finished room! We used tongue-in-groove cedar planking for the ceiling and painting the room in a pastel blue.
