Living Room Post #1


Here is the left side of the living room ceiling as viewed from the landing. Ahead is the right triangle of the upper window.

AS you can see, before the pine boards were placed (interlocking like puzzle pieces), there is a layer of green insulation board overlying the plastic sheeting overyling the fiberglass insulation.





Here, Gary had finished putting all the pine boards one by one on both sides, but he still had to tackle with the middle part which is exposed.











He made pieces of wood from 2x2 boards, shaped them accordingly, and stained them the same color (it was not easy for a non-pro calculating the angle and actually cutting the pieces to fit!). The next thing he did was to line the electrical wiring through these A-shaped boards (support) and box them in.







Here he had covered the gaps, boxed that thing, and made a line for the ceiling fan.

It is very warm to the eyes...very homey...

I could already imagine lots of things to do in decorating...

The next thing we did was to get a ceiling fan from Home Depot. Not much choices but I did not want to get online. It is better to see it in actual prior to purchasing.


This is the box of the ceiling fan that I chose. Big enough for the size of the living room (60 inches diameter), and simply elegant. (No fancy lights that look like baso for me, please!)










These were the parts ready to be assembled. Of course, that part had to be done by Gary!
