Before we went out to buy all the fir we needed for our dining and staircase, Steve decided it would be easiest to diagram the space. So what he did was just photograph the space, blow it up and then print it up in black and white.
Next he drew out all the trim we needed to add back in. Finally, he took measurements and wrote them in.
Although this step took an hour and then some, it was well worth the time. It made it relatively easy for me to figure out exactly how much and what types of wood to purchase.
Steve hopes to get started on cutting the trim today and then I plan to mask up and start staining.
I'm in the third trimester now so the clock is surely ticking.
