Window trim test

The new house interior will require many specialized and custom moldings. Today I created the first test piece. One of Janis' favorite themes is butterflies so we decided to incorporate them into the trim in the living and dining room areas.

Now they can find us

Yesterday I routed the address marker for the new house. It turned out really nice. The piece will blend perfectly into the other house trim and yet stand out when someone wants to know our house number - not that they won't know it is our house.

Trim ready for paint

The house project is still going full blast. The outside finishes are almost done, with the windows now being installed. Now it is time to begin putting up the trim - as soon as it is all painted and glazed.

Painting the trim on the house

Our university students are with us a few more days before they head back to their studies. Next week I'll be back in my shop once more and things will get back to normal after a busy summer on the house. We've been busy starting to install the routed trim and then painting it up in it's final colors.

More trim

There are many files and hundreds (perhaps thousands) of pieces to route for the new house. We are concentrating on the outside trim these day and keeping the MultiCam running day and night. The last few days we've been working on the round window trims.

CNC house

The MultiCam has been busy in the last few days routing the many pieces we needed to create the vaulted ceilings in the upstairs bonus rooms, and the living/dining room.

Firs trim installed

The new house is coming along great! The roof sheeting is a couple of days from completion. While the carpenters were busy on the roof we were busy on the ground floor welding up the framework for the trees and then attaching the lath for the plasterwork to follow. At long last we are now ready to begin icing the cake
