You may recall from my post at the beginning of March that we had quite a bit to repair after the old builtin wardrobe was removed. So after gyprocking, searching for a matching cornice and struggling with out of alignment and damaged wall, I can happily report that the room once again looks like a whole room.
Might not look like much to you, but when I consider this is how it looked in March when the wardrobe was removed, then I am happy.
I have also started construction of the bookcases and yesterday installed the bottom cases. This is just the carcase - there is still a shelf, then much higher carcases to come on top and then a nicely detailed face frame. The wood is all cut for the remaining carcases - just need to rip down to size a thick piece of MDF for the shelf.
It has rained heavily here most of the weekend and so I have been curtailed as I need the heavy saw setup in the garden to proceed. Next weekend is a long weekend so I have great hopes and plans - as long as the rain holds off.
