Trim, Hardwood Floor, Doors, Baseboards, Etc. - December 17 - March ??, 2004

The builders were able to start trimming out the windows and exterior doors on December 17, 2003. Lattice trim, hardwood floors, interior doors, interior door trim, baseboards, etc., were added as rooms were sanded, cleaned, and stained. These photos will give you an idea of what our trim looks like, but we plan to add more detailed photos later. We did a lot of internet and magazine searching to see how others were trimming their houses, particularly when the builders had to get creative to cover log home-specific issues. There didn't seem to be a lot of detailed photos out there (more like the usual ooh ahh photos of entire rooms, not really close-up shots), so hopefully some close-ups will come in handy to visitors to this site who are in the building process.

This isn't "trim," but we didn't know where else to put it.

Creative Trim - January 21, 2004

This trim was planed down to cover the ends of 2x6 tongue and groove wallboard that overlapped a ceiling beam. Note that a groove was also cut on the ends of the 2x6 to match the grooves in the wood. Don't use 2x6 trim on your walls, but if you do, a good trim carpenter can cover just about anything!
