Smoothwall

It has been a while but I finally found the time to finish the Smoothwall Project in the living room.

Even in Phoenix, I had a white xmas. Mine was a bit different.

I spent xmas day sanding down the mud I had applied in the living room.

After sanding and before picking up the poly and the canvas drop cloths, I rolled on a heavy coat of PVA Primer. You need extra stokes as the primer gets little bubbles that need to be smoothed down or you end up with more crap on your wall.

It was worth it.

Proper prep makes clean up a breeze and yes that is the carpet.
Yes indeed!

Hot Tub Awning

It started out with giving a client an hand moving a hot tub.

He wanted a simple awning to cover the tub. I did a quick design, materials list, and was doing other things.
I got a phone call saying “The Materials are Here, where are you?”
That led to the roof cutback for the rafters.

In order to figure out where stuff goes, we need a story board.

This gives a reference point for the post and beam and placing the rafters.

After the rafters are placed and the tails cut, and the fascia installed it is time for sheathing.

After the sheathing is done, roofing follows.

We are moving way beyond the simple awning now.
The Deck is laid down and the walls go up.

Time for some stain for the walls and deck as well as the exposed wood.

With the tub decked in, we need to make some storage and shelving for the hot tup supplies and the AV components.

The wing walls contain wiring which is placed before the exterior plywood is applied.
