Miller family house

04 Sep

A few months ago Sarah asked me to build her a new dresser because it was time to sell thier home and find a bit larger one for thier family. While I was at it, could I also build a bunk/loft bed so they could move the girls into the same bedroom.

My kids always provide me with challenges, but that also means they are guinea pigs while I try new designs and processes.

So she provided me with a picture of the loft bed and we found plans on on “The House of Wood” for the dresser. As we always do, we adjusted things just a bit to fit the clients needs and wants. 

Both items were built here in Mt Juliet Tn. , disassembled and packed into a uhaul trailer and driven 425 miles. Fortunantly the house they bought has a few large garages/barns where we assembled everything and painted/sanded and painted again.

Because we had a full week to spend up there we were able to accomplish a number of projects for them.

The first day Becky, Sarah and David began flipping the downstairs bathroom. This meant remvoign wallpaper and prepping the walls. Then while grandma kept her 2 granddaughters occupied, fed, changed, and entertained, David and I put faux shiplap, made of 3/8 sanded plywood, up on the walls of the bathroom. We then painted and replaced the fixtures.

Once that was done we put the same type or shiplap on one living room wall as an accent.

Not done yet, there is another bathroom to flip, more wallpaper to come down. Sarah did this on her day off. But it also needed a new sink, which needed a new vanity to be built. Yet another picture and make up plans on the fly.

All the while finding time to enjoy our granddaughters

It was a great week but a busy one. It was fun working with David and learning new concepts and ideas with him. He is a great student and a good teacher.

    Wow, as always, your work is amazing! Looking forward to a smaller scale project at Rachel’s this fall. She has asked her Dad to add on a deck. Gary is looking forward to working with his son in law too! Fun stuff! Best to all!
