During. Trying to get through all the drywall without sanding. If anything, very very minimal.

Re: My Office Remodel.


This office was added before we moved in. It formally was a clipped ceiling in my living room. It was disclosed as not being permitted when we bought the place around 22 years ago. We are ok with that.

I've got new cabinets coming and I'm leaving the back of that wall I framed without drywall. If I ever need it to access wiring it acts as a Chase behind the cabs.

The top will be plain old formica. It's not real unable anyhow becuase of how the ceiling dives down there.

All and all it's what I have to work with.

Pretty sure I'm going with hickory floors. I'm going to wait for cabinets to make that decision.

I'd like to thank Leo for finishing advice on that wall cap. I'm very pleased with the results.

Just now putty coated the walls to fill in old ugly spray texture. Getting ready for a skip trowel, or "Hungarian slab texture" as my dad used to joke.

No need to over think it. And it's a perfect fit. I will now flat tape it just under the reveal.

Other side gets a rope trim. The stain was a good match.
