Because the sun room hits keep coming. Are you sick of hearing about it yet? We are getting there, but we still have deets to share. Nothing really all that exiting today, but it’s another step towards completing our summer turned fall project. And we’re still hoping to enjoy it for at least a couple of days before it turns from a sun room into an ice cave. Fingers crossed.You may remember from our last post about trimming around the sliding glass door that we had two baseboards that needed to be glued in place with some construction adhesive. Since the stucco was so uneven, Dain had to use sets of hand weights to hold them against the wall while the adhesive dried. Because we work with what we have around here.
The next task was to cut and install the rest of the smaller baseboards. This was relatively easy as there are not too many cuts, but of course Dain likes to do things the hard way. There are a couple of ways you can bring two baseboards together into a corner. One being much harder of course. And Dain obviously chose that route by cutting one of the edges by hand following the curved design instead of just going with 45 degree cuts. Dain’s way does end up looking a lot better because you are left with only a minimal gap which can be filled in much easier with wood filler to make it look seamless.
After Dain made all of the cuts and was sure that everything fit properly, he used the air nail gun to attach them to the wall.
This part went really fast. It’s amazing how well projects can turn out and how much time you can save when you have the proper tools to work with.
After all the baseboards had been nailed in place, Dain used Elmers wood puddy to fill in all of the holes and cracks.
Now the only thing left to do to finish all of the baseboard trim and the trim around our sliding glass door is to sand the nail holes smooth and give them all a coat of white paint to match the window frames. Then we’re on to the finishing touches one of these days.
