Make room for making rooms


As much working access as possible

The time has come to join things up a little.  I had planned to work on the fourth wall for the sitting room next, but, as this would limit access to the hallway, it has now gone much further down the list of walls to do.

A walk around the walls

Fortunately I’d marked up the floor with the room spaces, so, working to that for the wall placements and the windows I’ve cut holes and tried out some of the frames but not yet cut doorways.  The kitchen and bathroom windows haven’t been prepped and added yet but two of the four involved are in a removable section so they can go to way-down the queue for the moment along with the sitting room fourth wall.

Does it work

Hopefully there’s now access room to work on each of the ground floor areas and the semi-floating wall pieces are firm enough for all the manoeuvring that will take – with the possible exception of doorway cutting.

Hallway I think first, then that sitting room fourth wall (to be attached to the hallway) might find its time to go in.

Having said that, I’ve started on the dining room because I’m running away from putting in the stairs!  ‘Twas ever thus – give it time, it’ll come around 😉

  1. It is always fascinating to see how other people work out their construction projects and their reasoning behind each decision. Reading that you also put off tackling the staircases for as long as possible, made me feel somewhat better about my own stair construction phobia.
    Meanwhile, your 1930’s house is visually taking shape and it is looking GOOD thus far! 😀

      It would probably be a good place to stall or even stop before it goes downhill from here. But then I’d miss the fun of it!
      I’m cheating with a ready made run of stairs then adding a quarter turn landing. Probably putting a large one step platform at the foot of the stairs too. Working on a busy meeting corner at the mo and it’s such a lovely day I hear the gardening chores calling 😉
