A blog dedicated towards architectural refinement of buildings and environments in which we live, work, and play. Chiefly this is brought about by the author with finish carpentry at heart, and many other disciplines radiating or spinning off from it.

Wallpaper and carpet removed. (The underside of the covering still needs to be removed with a paste stripper. That will best be accomplished after the stairs are protected.)

Ongoing Crown Application

Work goes on into the other common areas, Formal Dining, Foyer, and Entryway.
A new task is added in the matter of preparing the stairway for stain and varnish up to the wall so it can be re-carpeted. Other things come along such as repair and replacement of casement window crank hardware and the rotted or damaged wood sills where they sit. Front door hinges are replaced, having witnessed a gap in their brass from twenty years of wear. It's still sagging. A couple wood screws into the jamb may be in order to get things right. I fix the sloppy deadbolt latch gratis, fearing for the theft of my tools one night. I know full well this would only slow dedicated thieves.
