Last week’s rain forced us to shift gears and work on window extension jambs. Since the walls are so thick we need to extend the jambs of the windows. We found a great deal on 1×12 clear pine: $2/LF. Adam was so impressed with the quality of this wood–he spoke about each piece as though it were a person. He has been doing a fantastic job putting together and installing the extension jambs.
I have been particularly excited by this latest progress. Up until now, the only finished surfaces in the house were the second floor floor and the roof. It is really starting to come together.
It really helps a lot for visualizing the finished product. Now are you going to stain or paint them?
I bought a can of water-based polycrylic. I hope to apply it next week. I don’t want the wood to darken from the sun.
