Closing Up the Dining Room

Today Bob Jr. finished installing paneling in the dining room. He also installed the molding around the windows and doors. We were unable to find stock molding that matched the existing molding in the living room and dining room, so we had it custom milled along with the paneling--hence the recent delay while we waited for wood.

Still left to do in the dining room:

  • Install a baseboard around the east and north walls
  • Stain the new paneling
  • Paint the ceiling
  • Install electrical receptacles, cover plates, ceiling light trim kits, and light bulbs
  • Move out all the construction materials, tools, furniture, and boxes that have occupied the dining room for the past three months
  • Replace the carpet in both rooms
