  • Ceiling second coat.  I prefer sponge-paint on a ceiling...
    solidwire_bu...
  • ... but it's easier to get the paint on the ceiling with a regular foam brush
    solidwire_bu...
  • then texture it with the sponge.  I started with a paint-filled sponge so it wouldn't take away any paint.  Don't forget to floss!

  • Sanding one clapboard course at-a-time
    solidwire_bu...
  • Stain the floors (I wish I had scored and finished the floors before construction)

  • Wallpaper - The Milled Plywood walls are so absorbent, I put on a "sizing" coat of wallpaper paste.
    solidwire_bu...
  • Cut the wallpaper 1/4 or so shorter than the wall height
    solidwire_bu...
  • Paste the paper...
